India nationals denied bail

HARARE - An Indian national who does consultancy for a company that is sponsoring the ongoing India-Zimbabwe ODI series and a fan who reportedly raped a local woman while booked at a local hotel spent another night in remand prison after they were denied bail at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts.

Krishna Satyanarayana Gandlur, 33, and Ravi Krishnan, 40, appeared before Harare magistrate Tendai Mahwe charged with rape.

They were represented by Dumisani Mthombeni and advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

Prosecutor Peter Kachirika alleged that on June 16, Gandlur and Krishnan were booked in rooms 968 and 951, respectively, while the victim was in 969.

The court heard that around midnight, Gandlur invited the woman into his room for a drink and introduced her to Krishnan.

The two accused persons then ordered red wine and forced the complainant to drink some.

It was alleged that Gandlur attempted to kiss the woman but she resisted.

The court heard that when she was drunk Gandlur took advantage and forcibly had anal sexual intercourse with her.

just because she went into bwacha's room does notjustify the crude violent act. The Indians have well known rape culture. They should not be granted bail
