The Hyderabad Police on Sunday arrested another accused in the gang rape case of a minor girl from the city. With the latest arrest, so far 4 people have been nabbed by the police. The fifth accused is still absconding, said S Rajashekhar Reddy, Inspector Jubilee Hills.
Among the four arrested, are two juveniles who were nabbed by the police on Saturday. Out of the five people identified, three are minors.
The political heat was apparent with the BJP alleging that the police acted only after TRS leader and Information Technology Minister KT Rama Rao said none would be spared and Youth Congress activists staged a protest in front of the DGP office here over the ‘delay’ in police action.
The 17-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped when she was returning home after a party in the Jubilee Hills area of Hyderabad on May 28. The matter came to light after the minor girl’s father submitted a complaint to the police regarding the incident.
On the complaint of the girl’s father, a police case was registered against five persons.
