Rapes Of 4 More Minors Reported In Hyderabad Shaken By Teen's Gang-Rape

These cases come on the heels of a teen's gang rape that has rocked the city and assumed political colours now, regularly making nationwide headlines.

The BJP, which aspires to carve out space for itself, has been attacking ruling TRS after the gang-rape.


Even as a teen's gang-rape in Hyderabad continues to make national headlines, four more rape cases of minors have been reported in the city. 

A 12-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by two men while going to her grandmother's house. The incident happened on May 31 when the girl was reported missing. A police patrol found her in the Sultanshahi area on June 1.

The cab driver had taken her to a friend's house in Kondurg where both of them sexually assaulted her. They dropped her off the next morning. Both the accused, identified as 36-year-olds Shaik Kaleem Ali and Mohd Luqman Ahmed Yazdani, have been arrested.

The second case is of a girl who worked at a retail store from where 21-year-old Mohd Sufyan took her home on May 31 and sexually assaulted her. The girl subsequently complained of a stomach ache and the accused was arrested by the Kala Patthar police.

Another minor girl, from an orphanage, was raped in a car on April 22, though the incident has come to light only now. A 16-year-old girl had gone to celebrate a birthday party with the accused who on the pretext of buying cake and speaking to her privately raped her in the car. A phone was found with the girl in the orphanage where she was questioned. She confessed it was given to her by the accused.

23-year-old accused Suresh who works at a photocopy shop was then arrested and a case booked at the Ramgopalpet police station.

The fourth case of a girl who said she was raped inside a theatre. The minor was lured to watch a film by the accused, who is also a minor and was in touch with the girl for a few months. The incident reportedly happens a month ago and a case was registered at the Rajendra Nagar circle limits police station.

These cases come on the heels of a teen's gang rape that has rocked the city and assumed political colours now, regularly making nationwide headlines.

A 17-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by five people, including minors from political families, when she was returning home after a party in the Jubilee Hills area of Hyderabad on May 28. This recent incident has turned into a political fight between the ruling party and the BJP as one of the minors caught by the police is the son of a local leader of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's Telangana Rashtra Samithi party (TRS). Another minor who has been arrested is the son of a politician from Sangareddy.

The boys had offered to drop her home. Instead, they went to a pastry and coffee shop, where they changed into an Innova. After travelling for a while, she was allegedly assaulted inside the parked vehicle in the city. They took turns raping her while the others stood guard outside, the police said.

The police initially registered a case of "outraging modesty" based on the girl's father's complaint. It was changed to a rape case later.
