HYDERABAD: A day after an undergraduate student was kidnapped in Ghatkesar, Rachakonda police, on Thursday, registered a case of gang rape against the four accused. All the four men are in police custody and are being interrogated.

Based on the victim’s statement and the medical examination report, police added 376 (D) (gangrape), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 354 (physical contact and advances involving unwelcome and explicit sexual overtures), 354 (B) (assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe) of IPC to the already existing 365 (kidnap) of the IPC.
“Scientific investigation is in progress and the victim’s health is stable. More than 10 teams are assisting with the investigation,” an official of Rachakonda police said. While committing the offence, the accused also injured the victim on her leg and head, the official added.
The incident took place on Wednesday evening when the victim boarded an autorickshaw at Rampally, while returning home from college.
According to victim’s statement, the auto driver did not stop at the given location and instead took her on a different route, where three others got into the auto.
She was, subsequently, forced into another van and later taken to an isolated place, where she was allegedly gang raped.
Rachakonda police said that it was the victim’s presence of mind that helped them track her down.
“While she was held captive by the accused, they forced her to switch off her mobile phone. However, despite that, the victim secretly managed to turn on her phone. That’s what helped us reach the location,” the police official said.
Initially, since the victim was in a state of shock after being rescued and shifted to a local hospital, there were some contradictions in her statements regarding the rape, police said.
“We, therefore, waited for the medical examination to confirm sexual assault and added the sections accordingly,” the official added.
(The victim’s identity has not been revealed to protect her privacy as per Supreme Court directives on cases related to sexual assault)
