Telangana Student Gangraped: A 20-year-old student was allegedly gangraped by three men inside an abandoned hospital, in Nizamabad on September 28. The accused had picked up the student on the pretext of giving her a lift.
Five men approached the student on Tuesday night while she was on her way home and offered to drop her. After she got acquainted with one of the accused, she sat on a bike and then was driven around Nizamabad on the pretext of going for a drive. The accused then took her to an abandoned hospital where three of them allegedly raped the student in the watchman’s room.
The survivor was also made to consume liquor. While two men acted as accomplices in the gangrape, a complaint has been registered against all the five accused. The student was shifted to a hospital on Wednesday for treatment following which a case was registered. All five accused men have been arrested by the Nizamabad police and charged under sections 376 D (gangrape) and 341 (wrongful restraint) of the Indian Penal Code, as well as the SC & ST Act for prevention of atrocities, reported the Times of India.
Earlier this month, the state of Telangana was in news after the alleged rape and murder of a six-year-old girl in Hyderabad’s Saidabad area. The minor was allegedly lured by her 30-year-old neighbour named Raju on the pretext of giving her candies. When the girl failed to return home by evening, her parents approached the police who found her body inside Raju’s home.
A manhunt was launched to nab the accused, whose body was found on railway tracks in the limits of Ghanpur police station. The accused’s family and many people on social media alleged that Raju had been “encountered” by the police, as done with the suspects of the 2019 gangrape and murder of a veterinary doctor. On September 17, the Telangana High Court ordered a probe in the death of the accused under dubious circumstances. Read more on that here.
