The accused in the Sulibele mini-bus rape case has been requesting the police repeatedly to get him married to the victim. The driver of the mini-bus, Ravi (21) was arrested by police for raping 19-year-old in a moving bus. During interrogation, Ravi confessed that he was in love with the girl for the last one year and had proposed her.
“He claims that the he had seen the girl about a year ago and was in love with her since then. He said he had proposed to marry her but she had turned it down. It is then that he raped her in the bus. During the questioning, he requested the officials several times to marry him to the victim," a source said.
However, the girl says that she had seen him only two days before the incident. She had seen his face when she got into the same mini-bus. The girl was raped in the bus on the outskirts of India's southern technology hub Bangalore before dumping her off the road on Friday last.
