Nationalist Congress Party leader Supriya Sule demanded that Maharashtra government conduct a thorough probe into the rape and killing of a 18-year-old girl in Marine Lines. Reacting to the same, she said that such incidents indicate that women are unsafe in the state and that it does not reflect well on the state.
What Did Supriya Sule Say?
Sule took to Twitter and wrote, “A young woman’s body was found in a women’s hostel at Marine Drive in Mumbai. She was raped and murdered. This is a very serious and unfortunate incident. Such incidents are constantly underlining that women are not safe in Maharashtra.”
Further, offering her “heartfelt condolences” for the “unfortunate” victim, she wrote, “It is necessary for the state government to conduct a thorough investigation in this matter. It is certainly a matter of concern for Maharashtra that a criminal goes to the extent of going to a girls’ hostel and murdering her.”
It is very alarming matter: Sule
She was quoted by news agency as saying, “This is a very alarming matter, both Central and state govt are not serious about women’s safety & it’s a failure from their side. Security arrangements must be made in the hostels. Govt must install CCTV cameras and alarm bells inside the hostel and helpline numbers also should be set up.”
Background of The Case
An 18-year-old girl was raped and murdered at the Savitribai Phule Women’s Hostel, a state government-run facility located near the Police Gymkhana on Marine Drive. The incident came to light on Tuesday evening.
The girl was a student in Mumbai college and held a part-time job; she resided on fourth floor of the hostel.
According to the police, suspicions were raised when hostel staff discovered that the victim’s room was locked from the outside, and she had not signed the register upon leaving. Concerned about her well-being, they peered through the window and were horrified to find the girl lying lifeless on the floor.
The staff immediately alerted the police, who discovered signs of forced entry. The victim’s body exhibited evidence of strangulation on her neck, along with indications of sexual assault. A post-mortem examination has been scheduled.
Security Guard of Hostel Named Accused
The alleged perpetrator, Prakash Kanojia, a 33-year-old security guard, later took his own life on the railway tracks between Marine Lines station and Churchgate. Kanojia, who was married and resided in Colaba, was the prime suspect in this horrifying crime.

‘Congratulations Trolling Gang…’: Maha BJP Hits Back At Opposition For Sharing Video Of Fadnavis Allegedly Pushing Nagpur Citizen During Floods
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has responded to allegations made by the opposition regarding the alleged manhandling of citizens during Deputy Chief Minister (DCM) Devendra Fadnavis’ visit to Nagpur on Sunday. Videos were released by the BJP to refute these accusations.
During the visit, it was reported that some citizens wanted DCM Fadnavis to visit their homes, but police appeared to prevent them. However, Devendra Fadnavis took the initiative to visit their homes. The party stated that only a selective portion of the video was circulated by the opposition to support their claims.
BJP’s Scathing Response To Opposition
The BJP did not mince words when responding to the opposition’s actions. They congratulated former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and the Congress for seemingly prioritising the work of the so-called ‘trolling gang’ over constructive opposition duties.
Viral Video Sparks Controversy
A video of Devendra Fadnavis engaging with distressed citizens in Nagpur went viral on social media platforms. In the footage, he can be seen talking to residents who were expressing their dissatisfaction with the authorities’ response to the city’s flooding crisis. The video takes a controversial turn when Fadnavis appears to forcefully push a man who was attempting to communicate with him.
Opposition Criticises Fadnavis
Maharashtra Congress took to social media to criticize the Deputy CM’s actions, calling him ‘arrogant’ for his behaviour toward citizens reporting flood damage. They questioned whether such actions were indicative of an abuse of power.
Shiv Sena (UBT) also condemned DCM Fadnavis’ actions, labeling them as ‘arrogance of power.’ They emphasized the Deputy CM’s push to a flood-affected citizen asking for help.
Nagpur Gripped by Flooding
The incident occurred amidst severe flooding in Nagpur, Maharashtra’s second capital, caused by relentless rainfall. Thousands of residents were forced to evacuate their homes as floodwaters submerged entire neighbourhoods.
Approximately 10,000 residences were breached by the floodwaters and distressing visuals showed citizens wading through knee-deep water on the streets. Tragically, four lives were lost and at least 400 individuals had to be relocated to safer areas from the affected regions.
