BHOPAL: This is a sordid tale of sexual exploitation of a woman by her husband, who forced her to be repeatedly gang-raped by his bosses for a promotion at the workplace.
Her monster husband, Bhupendra Nimade, put her on the torture wrack for 12 years, snuffing out all vestige of resistance by forcing her to swallow sleeping pills that turned her into a veritable vegetable. The woman, a resident of Khargone, finally picked up the courage to lodge a case with the Habibganj police station. The FIR was lodged on Friday.

She was gang-raped by four people, even forced to perform unnatural sex. And, all this for a promotion and posting in the state capital by her husband, a bank employee.
She was able to come out of the hellhole existence with the help of a social organization, which approached the Habibganj police.
She said her husband had declared her insane in front of relatives even as she sank into depression. He also threatened to throw their daughters into flesh trade if she resisted.
A case of gang rape was lodge against the husband and six others. The 35-year-old rape survivor hails from Barwani and was married to Nimade in Khargone in 2000. He worked as a peon at Apex Bank.
The ordeal began when her husband started beating her and allowed his friends, Nirmal and Yogesh to rape her at Khargone.
Her husband would lace her milk with sleeping pills and also inject her with sedatives till she would lose consciousness.
Whenever she resisted, her husband would threaten to kill her children. In 2012, her husband came in contact with Apex Bank's legal advisor, Om Patidar and his associates Shivpal, Sunil and Ajay, all employees of the same bank.
"Nimade assured Patidar and his aides that if they promoted him and got him transferred to Bhopal, he would force me to have sex with them. Later, Patidar promoted my husband as general assistant, a post above peon, and was transferred to Bhopal. He was also allotted a quarter in bank's residential premises at Arera Colony where we shifted in June 2013. Besides, her husband was offered a plot for free by Patidar", the woman said.
As per the deal, Patidar and his associates raped her on several occasions. The woman also suspects that her kids too were sexually exploited. But the children could never muster the courage to speak against their father, she said.
The woman also demanded a medical examination of her kids to confirm sexual harassment. Office-bearers of the social organization, Mahila Utpidan Morcha, including its convener Vijaya Pathak have demanded justice for the gang rape survivor and compensation.
The station house officer of Habibganj police station GP Agrawal said a case of gang rape has been registered against all the accused.
