Telangana Police announced on Friday that one individual has been arrested in connection with the suspected gang rape of a teenage girl last week in Hyderabad’s Jubilee Hills.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (West Zone) Joel Davis stated at a press conference that the suspect, Saduddin Malik, had been apprehended by the police.
Three of the five people identified are children, according to the authorities. According to CCTV evidence and the victim’s testimony, the police have identified five suspects, the DCP stated at a press conference on Friday. Three of them, he claimed, are minors.

However, the victim was unable to provide any information about the perpetrators. She only gave out one name, and special squads were formed right away to track them down.

“The footage from the CCTV cameras has been recovered. According to CCTV evidence and the victim’s statement, we have identified five suspects,” stated Joel Davis.

He went on to say that the cops had identified a juvenile child and had tracked him down. Minors should not, however, be apprehended at night, according to the legislation. “I’m optimistic that we’ll be able to apprehend him tomorrow,” Davis added.

According to multiple news sources, Telangana Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali’s son was involved in the event. Telangana Police, on the other hand, dismissed such allegations.

He further stated “Three of the five suspects have been recognized as children. Saduddin Malik, one of the suspects, has been apprehended. The claim that the Home Minister’s son-in-law is involved is without merit.”

The girl was allegedly seen standing with the suspected attackers outside the pub where she had met them, according to security footage that has gone viral on social media. The accused lads had volunteered to drop her off at her house. Instead, she was molested in a public parking garage. Her assailants alternated rapping her while others stood guard outside the car.

On May 28, a 17-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped while returning home from a party in Hyderabad’s Jubilee Hills neighbourhood. The incident was brought to light after the father of the juvenile girl filed a police report about it.

A police case has been filed against five people in response to the girl’s father’s allegation. The case was filed under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 354 and 323, as well as the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (POCSO) Act Sections 9 and 10.

KT Rama Rao, the ruling TRS Working President and Telangana Minister, asked the state’s Home Minister, Director General of Police (DGP), and Hyderabad City Police Commissioner to take “prompt and strong action” in the gang rape of an adolescent girl in Hyderabad on Friday.
