Man held for at­tempted kid­nap

Deccan Chronicle - - CITY -

Up­pal po­lice ar­rested a man on Thursday who tried to kid­nap a six-year-old girl with an in­ten­tion to sex­u­ally as­sault­ing her.

On Wednesday evening T. Rishika, 6, and her brother T. He­manth, 9, were on their way home from school. “Gundikan­dula Ajay, 22, a driver, who was drunk, saw the girl and her brother and of­fered to drop them home. The sib­lings could not com­pre­hend his in­ten­tions and got on his bike at Te­lan­gana Grameen Bank. Af­ter trav­el­ling a cer­tain dis­tance, he dropped He­manth near Kanaka Durga Tem­ple and force­fully drove away with Rishika,” said G. Sun­deep, ACP, Malka­j­giri.

Rishika started cry­ing af­ter Ajay mis­be­haved with her. To con­trol the sit­u­a­tion, he stopped his bike at Cher­la­pally X road of Kushaiguda and went out to buy wa­ter. A passer by named Tumma Malesh alerted the cops and Kushaiguda po­lice res­cued the mi­nor.

They later handed over the ac­cused to the Up­pal po­lice and the mi­nor was sent home. A case has been reg­is­tered against Ajay un­der Sec­tion 366 of IPC (kid­nap­ping) and Sec­tion 8 of POCSO (as­sault and crim­i­nal force on a child). The Falaknuma po­lice is­sued a no­tice to Goshama­hal BJP leg­is­la­tor T. Raja Singh on Thursday ask­ing him to ap­pear be­fore it for in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a case reg­is­tered against him for pro­mot­ing en­mity be­tween groups.

Ac­cord­ing to Falaknuma in­spec­tor, P. Yada­giri, a case was reg­is­tered against the leg­is­la­tor af­ter he made some re­marks against the Qu­ran ear­lier this week. The MLA had de­manded that a ban be im­posed on the “green book” as it is the cause of ter­ror­ism in the coun­try and he would fight for it to be banned. He fur­ther said that only those “beg­ging for vote” host If­tar par­ties, and de­clared he would nei­ther host nor at­tend such events

The leg­is­la­tor said that these days, many leg­is­la­tors are busy host­ing If­tar par­ties and wear­ing skull caps. They think if they have to do vote bank pol­i­tics, they will have to think of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’ (to­gether will all, development for all). “Those at­tend­ing If­tar are beg­gars for vote. My think­ing is dif­fer­ent,” he said.

DCP, (south) V. Satya­nararyana said that the no­tice was is­sued un­der Sec­tion 41 of CrPC.
