Vizag: Woman raped in broad daylight on busy street, receives no help

Vizag: A woman in Andhra Pradesh's Visakhapatnam district was raped in broad daylight on a crowded footpath on Sunday afternoon.

The police arrested the drunk man, identified as Ganji Siva, a historysheeter.

A video, said to be shot by an auto driver, clearly shows that the man forcing himself on the woman in full public view. He was sent to two weeks of judicial remand.

"The woman had left her home in Vepagunta near Pendurthi on the outskirts of Vizag after a tiff with her husband and had arrived in Vizag on a bus early Sunday".

Bryant sat out the entire 2016 due to a suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Bryant has tallied 17 receptions for 231 yards and one touchdown thus far into the 2017-18 campaign.

No one intervened and an auto-driver who reportedly was aghast by what he saw and "did not know how to respond", made a video of the assault and reported it to the police, leading to the arrest.

What is more horrifying is the fact that pedestrians could be seen walking on the footpath, but turning a blind eye to the incident. Suresh said the woman had not eaten for hours and was too weak to scream for help.

In the video, a lot of people can be seen passing-by but no one cared to stop and help the victim. By the time police reached the spot, he had left the place. She was sleeping on a pavement when the accused attacked her. He was later traced and nabbed with the help of clues given by the locals. She has been sent to the King George Hospital for a medical examination.
