Deccan Chronicle - - City - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT

A 16-year-old girl from Ba­hadur­pura area has al­leged that she was gan­graped by four men for four years. The men also videographed the in­ci­dent and threat­ened her.

Fol­low­ing a com­plaint from the girl on De­cem­ber 24, 2018, the Ka­matipura po­lice ar­rested three men, iden­ti­fied as Raju Bhutda, 32, Shub­ham Vyas, and Ab­hi­jeet, who were res­i­dents of the same lo­cal­ity.

The men had al­legedly mixed seda­tives in soft drinks and raped her once she was un­con­scious. A dharna was held by the vic­tim’s fam­ily and 30 peo­ple gath­ered and protested, de­mand­ing jus­tice for the girl on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Speak­ing to DC, the fam­ily mem­bers of the vic­tim said that the men sex­u­ally ha­rassed the girl for a long pe­riod by threat­en­ing her with videos they recorded.

“She slipped into de­pres­sion and shared her plight with the fam­ily mem­bers, fol­low­ing which we ap­proached the Bharosa cen­tre here, who then asked us to file a com­plaint with the Ka­matipura po­lice,” said a fam­ily mem­ber.

The crime pri­mar­ily oc­curred in 2015 and the three ac­cused men­tioned by the girl were ar­rested within a week of reg­is­tra­tion of FIR, said an of­fi­cial from Hyderabad Po­lice.

“The trio were ar­rested in De­cem­ber. The vic­tim also met Bharosa Cen­tre ACP Nar­mada, Ad­di­tional CP Crimes and SIT, Shikha Goel and a coun­selor, where three to four rounds of coun­selling was done,” said the of­fi­cial.

Sub­se­quently, they came to the Bharosa cen­tre again say­ing that one of the wit­nesses is also in­volved in the crime and said that they wanted him to be ar­rested too.

“We have taken ac­tion im­me­di­ately and have handed over the in­ves­ti­ga­tion to out lady of­fi­cer, ACP Sridevi. She is al­ready go­ing through the records,” said the of­fi­cial, adding that, we will see to it that the state­ment is be­ing fol­lowed for more con­fir­ma­tion ac­cord­ingly.

The vic­tim’s fam­ily stayed on the ground floor and the party in­volved in the of­fence stayed on a floor above them in the same build­ing.

Po­lice Com­mis­sioner An­jani Ku­mar said that the other ac­cused will also be ar­rested soon and no one will es­cape the law.
