“We have taught him a lesson as he was deceiving two other women with same promises. I had no option but to take the law in my hands as the affected woman had initially gone to police who failed to act,” said Desai.
Trupti said that the victim had approached her to intervene after the man refused to marry her.
“When the girl came to me with the complaint, I even met the man’s father and insisted that he marry her, but he refused and tried to settle the matter by offering money to the victim,” the activist said.
The man, identified as Srikant Londhe has been arrested by the local police.
