An 16-year-old girl was allegedly stripped naked and her body cut with blade by her friend in Hyderabad. The accused reportedly kept filming the act even as the girl, covered in blood, kept requesting him to stop the assault and let her go.
The girl was rescued by locals after they heard her screams; the accused was beaten up before he was handed over to the police. The incident is reported to have taken place in Hyderabad’s Gandhi Nagar on Thursday.
The 19-year-old man was reportedly in a relationship with the 16-year-old girl and made physical contact with her regularly. He even used to film the act and used the videos to blackmail her into submission, reports said.
On Thursday, he called her to an isolated place and sexually abused her. After this incident, the man was caught by locals and handed over to the police.
Gandhi Nagar, which has a large number of students, has become infamous for drug-related incidents, say social workers.
The police had initially registered a case of kidnapping based on the complaint of the girl’s father, but subsequently charged the accused under multiple sections including rape, trying to outrage modesty of a woman, procuration of a minor, criminal intimidation and also under sections of POCSO and IT Act for circulating sexually explicit, pornographic material of the victim
