She had stated in her statement that two bikers had helped her identify the vehicle and later reach the police station. The police questioned the two bikers also.

She had stated in her statement that two bikers had helped her identify the vehicle and later reach the police station. The police questioned the two bikers also. 

“The actual brains behind the alleged plot are Dada Gavhan and Sandeep Jagdale. Gavhan and Jagdale have previous charges against them and had allegedly hatched the plan against Chavan and Navale over personal animosity,” said Baramati Division Additional SP Sandip Pakhale.

The woman claimed to have been raped by two men in a Fortuner car at Shindawane ghat on Friday night along the Uruli Kanchan-Jejuri route while returning from a pilgrimage from Narayanpur. She had reportedly taken a lift from them.

Police officials said that the woman who had earlier stated that she was in her 30s also turned out to be in her 40s with two children, a daughter and a son. Her daughter is married, the son is a Std 10 dropout who currently has a job.
