Now again in Hyderabad, on Saturday similar incident took place. Two persons, including the son of a police officer, were arrested by the Malakpet police for sexually harassing a woman software professional at Dilsukhnagar. One of their accomplices is at large.
The three accused persons, Srikanth (28), Venkatesh (30) and Arun (27), who were drunk, approached a 28-year-old software professional, who was waiting near an electronics store in Dilsukhnagar. “After trying to start a conversation with the woman, one of them caught her hand and tried to drag her into their car. They also manhandled a passer-by who came to her rescue,” said A. Ganga Reddy, Inspector at Malakpet.
By receiving the information, Malakpet police rushed to the spot and took Srikanth and Venkatesh into custody. The accused persons were arrested and produced in the court, which remanded them. One person is missing out of the three accused.
The police registered a case under Criminal Law Amendment Act 2013 and arrested two of them. Efforts are being made to arrest Arun. The police rejected reports that the police official came to the station and spot a scene over the arrest of his son.
