Mumbai no longer a city we grew up in: Bollywood
Four people have been detained for the alleged gangrape in an abandoned mill compound late Thursday. The 22-year-old woman, who suffered grievous internal injuries, has been admitted to the Jaslok Hospital along with her colleague who was brutally thrashed. Both are in a state of shock.
The incident came barely five days after an American woman was attacked and robbed in a suburban local train, raising questions over the safety and security of women in the city.
Some of the popular names of B-town took to micro-blogging site Twitter to show their concern and express grief. Here is what they tweeted.
Karan Johar: Helpless to say the least ... words like "devastated" ... "disgusted" mean nothing at a time like this! Gangrape in my city, I feel ashamed.
Pooja Bhatt: Mortified to hear about the gangrape in Mumbai which occurred in broad daylight. This is not the city I grew up in. Ashamed!
Anupam Kher: There is no fear of law. Rape cases go on for years. Nobody is hanged for Rape. Politicians are interested in power not welfare of people.
Shobhaa De: Yeh mera India. Yeh meri Mumbai. (This is my India and this is my Mumbai). Another gang rape. One more victim. Just another day in our great nation.
Manoj Bajpayee: Mumbai is shamed by the incident of gangrape last night. We all hang our head in shame that we cannot give a safe world to women.
Onir: Sad to see how the city one loves and has given so much to so many is becoming a place of nightmare for women.
Gul Panag: Sad validation of the fact that no city in India is safe for women. It is after all the same prevention, enforcement mechanism in use all over.
Shreya Ghoshal: Disgusted disgusted disgusted. A gangrape in daylight in our so called 'safe’ city Mumbai.
