Yet another gang-rape, this time in EFLU, Hyderabad

  • Yet another Child molested in Bengaluru

Hyderabad, November 3: A post-graduate student of English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) was raped by two people including a fellow student on the university campus, police said on Sunday. Police arrested the accused after the 23-year-old girl lodged a complaint that she was raped in boy’s hostel on the night of Oct 31.

Such incidents seem to happen despite the so called safety measures; that too frighteningly frequent. And many, continue to remain unreported. However, the EFLU student, who was sent for medical examination, told police that the accused intoxicated and violated her during a party, but she did not approach them immediately after the incident as she was traumatized. However, supported by her fellow students, she lodged a complaint, eventually.

Police identified the accused as Nitin Solasamudram and Raj Simha. While 21-year-old Nitin is a post-graduate student of journalism, Raj Simha (24) is a former student of the university. Both the accused are from Andhra Pradesh.

Meanwhile, yet another child was molested in Bangaluru. A two-year-old girl child was allegedly molested on Sunday at a playground in the city, police said. The victim’s parents lodged a complaint with the police following which, the police arrested Suresh, 29 and a criminal case was registered against the suspect under sections 4 and 6 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 and section 376 of the Indian Penal Code.

“We will seek the suspect’s custody for interrogation Monday from a local court and investigate the case to file charge sheet at the earliest,” the official said.

The latest heinous crime against a girl child comes days after a six-year-old student was allegedly raped by her Hindi teacher in Cambridge School in the eastern suburb Oct 28-29 and a three-year-old student by an attendant in Orchids School in the northern suburb Oct 21.

The two accused in both cases were arrested and remanded to custody for investigation.  Speedy enquiry and fast judgements are the need of the hour, by the concerned authorities, in all the above cases.
