Shakti Mills Gangrape Convict, Aide Arrested For Stabbing Man
A convict in the 2013 Shakti Mills gangrape case in Mumbai and his associate were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly stabbing and injuring a man here over drugs, a police official said.
Crime Branch officials arrested Akash Jadhav (25), the gangrape convict, and his aide Ankit Arun Naik (25) from Dombivali in neighbouring Thane city, the official said.
Jadhav was a minor when he was apprehended along with four others for raping a photojournalist on the deserted premises of the defunct Shakti Mills in central Mumbai in August 2013.
He was subsequently convicted by the Juvenile Justice Board here and spent two years at a correctional centre before being released.
The latest case against Jadhav pertains to attack on a man in suburban Bandra on February 27, the police official said.
The victim was stabbed with a knife by Jadhav and Naik, leaving him grievously injured, he said.
