MUMBAI: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray ordered a fast track trial in the case that involved a 30-year-old homeless woman.

She was raped and had a rod inserted in her private parts. She succumbed to her injuries.

Thackeray said in his press statement, "perpetrator will be severely punished. In this regard, I have also spoken to the Home Minister of the state. The incident is reprehensible."
