Hyderabad,jan.14 : Police have arrested four persons who had sexually exploited a 16-year-old girl several times by blackmailing her.
The Jubilee Hills police arrested M Sudheer, 30, a car driver from Borabanda, and his friends Srinivasulu, 23, from Rajendranagar, M Siddi Ramulu, 29, and M Shankar, 31, both from Indira Nagar in Banjara Hills.
One of the accused M Sudheer, a driver, had also abducted her last month and allegedly raped her by threatening her that he would make her obscene pictures and videos public. Four persons were arrested from different locations here after the victim’s father lodged a complaint, police said.
Ramulu’s friend Srinivasulu came to know about the affair. A few months ago, when the victim was alone at home, Srinivasulu entered her house and, by threatening to show photographs of her intimate moments with Ramulu to her parents, he raped her.
On December 22, Sudheer abducted the girl from Road Number 40, Jubilee Hills, in a car and took her to a rented accommodation in Borabanda. By convincing the neighbours that she was his wife, Sudheer confined her for over 10 days and sexually exploited the victim. Meanwhile, the victim’s father lodged a complaint with the Jubilee Hills police and a missing case was registered.
On learning that police were looking for the girl, Sudheer let her go home on January 3. After reaching home, the victim narrated to her parents about the kidnapping and sexual assault. The four were arrested from their houses on Tuesday. They were produced in court and remanded in judicial custody.
