In her complaint, the victim stated that she got in touch with the accused through Facebook about two months ago. They went to watch the film Padmaavat in Prashanth Theatre when she was allegedly sexually assaulted.

The accused took advantage of the fact that there were only a few people in the theatre and nobody was near them.

The girl reportedly received severe injuries on her private parts and is undergoing treatment.

Based on a complaint by the survivor, a case was registered against Bhikshapati under Section 376 of the IPC, that deals with rape.

The accused has been sent to judicial custody and further investigation is ongoing.
