Two men have been arrested in Pune for dragging a 22-year-old woman out of car and attacking and abusing her for ‘wearing short dress and roaming around with men’, according to a news report.

Almost a week after the woman lodged a complaint, the Kondhwa police has arrested two of the accused, Amit Mukhedkar and Shubham Gupta, on Sunday and is on the hunt for the rest.

"How can you wear such a short dress and roam with two males at such a time? In Pune, this is not allowed," the woman was told by the drunk men in the wee hours of May 1, Mid-Day reported.

"At 5.30 am, while we were passing by the Lullanagar main signal, one car started driving parallel to our car. The window glasses were tinted, but a man rolled down the glass and peeped into our car," the woman told the newspaper.

The men abused the woman, who was returning home after a sangeet rehearsal of one of her friends, and followed the car to her place. Upon reaching her home, they intercepted the car and dragged her out of the car.

When one of her male friends tried intervening, he too was abused and attacked by the group.

"I dialled 100, but no one answered. The cops arrived an hour later and filed an NC (non cognisable) complaint. After I got to know what an NC is, I visited the Kondhwa police station so many times. I finally managed to file a proper case on Sunday," the victim added.
