In a shocking incident, a 15-year-old girl was kidnapped and raped by one Ravi, under the Bowenpally police station limits four days ago. According to reports, the girl belonged to the SC community and was a resident of Bapujinagar. The incident took place when she had gone to a nearby grocery store.
According to the victim’s mother’s complaint, her daughter was returning home on April 22 at 7pm from the nearby kirana shop when the 22-year-old Ravi, a resident of Mudfort, kidnapped her and later raped her. He dropped her back at around 1am. The Bowenpally police booked a case of kidnapping and rape against Ravi under the IPC and sections of the SC/ST act. They began investigations and two special teams were formed in the supervision of ACP Begumpet ITVS Surayanarayana.
While speaking to Postnoon, Suryanarayana said, “These days the youth are heavily influenced by television and this is leading to spurt in rape cases, especially in areas like Secunderabad, Karkhana, Trimulgherry, Begumpet, Bowenpally. They are picking up tips on how to kidnap and rape girls from these shows.”
In a separate incident a class II student was raped by a youth last week at Chinna Kameela. The 9-year-old girl had gone to run an errand, when the youth raped her. When she went home, her mother noticed that she was crying and bleeding. Suspecting that she had been raped, she lodged a complaint.
“The influence of these television shows on the youth is obvious from the spurt in crimes. Parents should monitor their children’s TV viewing and avoid shows that have obscene or vulgar content. These shows are one of the reasons why youngsters get involved in criminal activities. They harm the victim and also ruin their own lives,” said Suryanarayana.
