A 17-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by three to four men in Hyderabad in a Mercedes car, on Friday.
A security footage captured the girl standing with the suspected attackers outside the pub where she had met them.
The boys had offered to drop her home. Instead, she was assaulted inside a parked Mercedes at Jubilee Hills, an upscale neighbourhood in Hyderabad. Her attackers took turns to rape her while the others stood guard outside the car.
The crime in the heart of the Telangana capital, allegedly involving children and grandchildren of politicians driving luxury cars, has triggered nationwide outrage.
No one has been arrested so far. A massive protest at a police station this evening saw shouting BJP workers being carried away by policemen.
Most of the accused are Class 11 and 12 students and all belong to “politically influential” families. The son of an AIMIM legislator was allegedly in the group, but the police say he left before the assault; he was apparently picked up by his brother and went to see off his uncle flying to the US. The BJP has alleged that the son of a Waqf Board official and the grandson of a minister are also believed to be involved.
