Muslim Man Arrested after Rape Bid on Hindu Woman: Deganga, WB

A middle-aged Hindu woman was returning home from work, when a local Muslim youth Latif Mondal allegedly dragged her to a bush and tried to rape her. The incident happened in Deganga of North 24 Parganas, West Bengal on 22nd October, Monday.

Hearing the woman’s desperate shouts for help, some local residents who were working in a nearby paddy field rushed to the spot and saved the woman. They also caught Latif and beat him up.
