Man held for attempted kidnap
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.
