While the Navi Mumbai Police are yet to identify a serial rapist wanted in at least nine cases of sexual abuse of minors, an unidentified miscreant adopted the same modus operandi and attempted to sexually abuse a 11-year-old in Turbhe village, police said on Friday.
Senior PI Satish Nikam, APMC police station, said, “The method used in this case is what the serial rapist has been using, so we suspected his role. But the victim and her mother, who saw the accused’s face clearly, said it wasn’t the serial rapist based on photos. The serial rapist is clean-shaven and speaks Hindi; the accused in this case wears a moustache and speaks Bengali-accented Hindi. We suspect it could be someone using the serial rapist’s methods.”
According to the FIR, the accused visited the victim’s house around 4.30 p.m. on Thursday, and introduced himself as her father’s colleague. He convinced the victim’s mother to allow her to accompany him and molested her at the site for a new civic hospital.
