More charges against Mane

Days after Marathi writer Laxman Mane was booked for sexual assault against three women, police on Thursday said two more women have accused him of raping them.

Mane is absconding since he was booked on Tuesday on the allegations of the three women working in a school run by him in Jakatwadi village in Satara district, around 250 km from Mumbai.

“Of the two new complainants who came forward on Wednesday, one is a cook and the other is a peon in the school. Mane is absconding and police teams are investigating the matter,” an officer posted at taluk police station said. Mane, 63, a former Maharashtra legislative council member, has now been charged with raping five women working at his residential school for tribal children in Satara.
