HYDERABAD: A nine-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 19-year-old youth in Old City’s Mangalhat area in the early hours of Thursday while her parents were away from home. The accused has since been arrested.
The accused, who is from the same locality, took the girl to an under-construction site where he forced himself on her. “He sexually assaulted the girl. When she raised an alarm, he fled from the spot,” ACP, Goshamahal, M Narender Reddy said. The accused is a member of an orchestra troupe.
Based on a complaint from the girl’s mother, police registered a case and launched a manhunt. After going through the CCTV camera footage, officials found that the accused spotted the girl walking alone near her house. He took advantage of the situation and raped her, police said.
“From CCTV footage, we identified the accused. Our teams later arrested him from the same locality,” west zone joint commissioner AR Srinivas said. The girl was sent for a medical examination. Based on the doctor’s opinion, a rape case was registered. At around midnight on Wednesday, the girl’s mother went to the police to complain against her ‘abusive’ husband. When they reached home, the daughter was not there.
