Susheel and his driver had followed a woman pedestrian in their car at Banjara Hills on Friday and attempted to pull her into the vehicle. After she escaped and raised an alarm, the duo was beaten up by a crowd.
CCTV footage showed that Susheel’s car had followed the woman for almost 1 km. The police had booked only the driver under the pretext that the other person in the car had not been identified.
After a day-long outcry against their alleged inaction, police recorded the statement of the victim, a teacher, and issued notices to Susheel and driver M. Ramesh alias Appa Rao to appear for investigation.
