For all the wrong reasons, Hyderabad is back in the news. After the gut-wrenching gang rape incident last month in the posh Jubilee Hills area of a minor girl by sons of MLAs and leaders from ruling AIMIM and TRS comes another horrific report of physical assault and sexual harassment from Hyderabad.
A woman working for the UN (United Nations Organization) had gone to a lounge club at ITC Kohenur hotel in Hyderabad with two friends on Sunday. At 1.30 AM, she was molested and assaulted by eight youth who threatened to 'teach her a lesson' by raping her.
Her friends, too, were attacked with bottled when they came to her defense. For several hours, the Cyberabad police refused to lodge a complaint to make matters worse. The case was filed only after higher police officials were approached.
Abrar and Saad, only two of the attackers, were named. Initially, one of the attackers tried to get the woman's number. The eight of them started harassing her when she refused and threatened to forcibly take her out and rape her. The attackers claimed they were 'politically connected' and 'very powerful people.' It is reported that the hotel staff also couldn't control the assailants.
