17-year-old gang-raped in Hyderabad while returning home from party, MLA's son under radar
Hyderabad, Jun 03: A 17 year-old was gangraped in the Jubilee Hills area of Hyderabad while she was returning home after attending a get-together at a pub.
According to the First Information Report (FIR), the incident took place last Saturday. The family later told the police that they grew suspicious after noticing minor injuries on the girl's neck. When asked, the victim said some men had "misbehaved" with her while returning home after the party.
The incident occurred when the girl was leaving the pub and some of the youngsters who'd met her there reportedly approached her, offered to drop her home.
"When the car stopped at an isolated location in the darkness, the youngsters violated her one after the other," a police officer said, as reported in The Hindu.
"However, since the crime was committed in the night, the video footage could not give us details," the officer added.
The girl's father has filed a complaint and a rape case has been registered against five minors for the alleged gang rape on May 28.
