‘Rape’ is the heinous act of the society that has left the females in vague be it a child, teenagers, or the elderly all are left in vain. Parents of a girl child are afraid of allowing their darling to go anywhere and go break free. So many pros- cons! We are talking about women’s empowerment, considering both genders are the same then why is this shameful act still existing in society. The sensational gang-rape case came to light of a minor girl in a Mercedes car at a high-end of Jubilee hills in Telangana.
The Chief Minister of Telangana has ordered strict actions to be taken against the culprits. The cops have finally made two arrests in the case after a delay of five days. As per the allegations, the 5 accused, including 3 minors, were from highly influential political families. The police said the identity of the five accused was identified via CCTV footage. Deputy Commissioner of Police (West Zone) Joel Davis said cops have traced another juvenile boy, who will be apprehended on Sunday.
The Hyderabad Police also quashed media reports which claimed that Telangana Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali’s son was involved in the incident. Police are verifying the role of the kin of two politicians, including an MLA and a person from an affluent family in connection with the sexual abuse.
As a part of the investigation, the MLA was also questioned about the whereabouts of the kin by the police but he denied the involvement of the kin.
The accused are Class 11 and 12 students and belong to “politically influential” families, say the police. An MLA’s son is believed to be part of the group, but the police say he may not have been involved in the gang rape. On Saturday evening, the 17-year-old girl had gone to a pub with a friend, who left early. The teen reportedly befriended a boy and left the club with him and his friends in two cars. They had allegedly promised to drop her home. The group went to a pastry shop in Banjara Hills before the crime.
The five boys allegedly parked the car at Jubilee Hills, which is among the posh neighborhoods in the city, and took turns raping the girl while the others stood guard outside the car. The victim’s father noticed the injuries and asked about them, it was then the girl revealed that some boys have attacked her in the pub where she was partying. A case of ‘outraging modesty’ was registered on the girl’s father’s complaint. Later when she was sent to a women police officer she revealed the whole matter. The victim was unable to reveal the identity of the accused, she only had one name.
Police were verifying CCTV footage to identify the accused. One of the car seized is registered in the name of a woman.
