Two Pakistani men have been sentenced to life in prison in Greece for the gang-rape of an 18-year-old British woman on a beach in Rethymno, Crete. The horrifying incident occurred in July 2022 when the young woman was sunbathing on a sunbed.
The perpetrators, aged 27 and 24, approached her and carried out the assault, taking turns to violate her. The victim bravely reported the crime immediately, leading to the arrest of the attackers.
Despite initially confessing to the rape, the defendants later claimed in court that the woman had consented. However, after carefully examining the evidence and testimonies, the court determined their guilt and handed down a life sentence.
The identities of the convicted individuals have been withheld, and they have been transferred to a prison in Tripoli, Greece, to serve their sentences. This case has garnered significant attention due to its severity, highlighting the importance of ensuring justice and protection for victims of such heinous crimes.
The case highlights the resilience and strength demonstrated by survivors of such despicable acts. It also underscores the crucial role law enforcement agencies and judicial systems play in ensuring that perpetrators are held accountable for their actions.
A few days back, reports emerged that an Indian man was arrested after he was caught on surveillance camera raping a British girl in the UK.
The police of South Wales informed that the student had been sentenced for raping a girl. Preet Vikal, a 20 year-old Indian student in the UK, has been imprisoned for six years and nine.
The imprisonment comes a year after the incident was reported in June. The case gained attention after surveillance footage captured Vikal carrying an “intoxicated” woman through Cardiff city center.
The CCTV footage, which was shared by the police, showed Vikal carrying the vulnerable woman, raising concerns about her well-being and safety. The incident sparked a thorough investigation, leading to the arrest and subsequent conviction of Vikal for the serious crime of rape.
