Hyderabad Gang-Rape: BJP Leader’s Questions To Cops On Role Of MLA’s Son



  • In a new twist in the Hyderabad teen gangrape case, a BJP MLA has released a video clip and photographs, alleging the presence of an AIMIM MLA’s son in a car with the survivor, where the leader says the minor was sexually assaulted.
  • Police have so far maintained that the legislator’s son was not present at the time of the alleged crime.
  • The video clip and photographs shared with NDTV show a young man, said to be the AIMIM MLA’s son, involved in an intimate act with the minor girl in the presence of other accused. NDTV cannot vouch for the authenticity of the video and pictures.
  • Alleging cover-up and delay in police action, BJP MLA Raghunandan Rao sought to know why the police have not named the MLA’s son as one of the accused.
  • “The police have admitted the girl is a minor and sexual assault took place. Now they must answer who is sexually assaulting the girl inside the Mercedes. Is it the MLA’s son or not? As you know, for a minor, there is no question of consent. Why aren’t those inside the Mercedes being booked under the POCSO Act? Why has the MLA’s son been let off,” Mr Rao asks.
  • The BJP MLA claimed he has more evidence to prove the involvement of the AIMIM MLA’s son in the crime.
  • Mr Rao released the video clip and the photographs a day after the police dismissed the claim as baseless. “We have identified five culprits as per CCTV footage and the statement of the survivor, and the MLA’s son is not one of them, “Joel Davis, Deputy Commissioner of Police, West Zone, had said on Friday.


  • Four accused, including three teenagers, have been taken into custody so far for allegedly raping the girl.
  • A minor accused was taken into custody today, while two teenagers were detained yesterday. Another accused, identified as Saduddin Malik, was detained on Friday.
  • The Hyderabad Police said the fifth accused is still on the run, and a search is on to trace him.\The 17-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by five young men when she was returning home after a party in the Jubilee Hills area of Hyderabad on May 28.
