The suspect, who is at large, is from the same neighbourhood of the victim
Hyderabad: A 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a man at Suraram in Dundigal here on Saturday. The suspect, who is at large, is from the same neighbourhood.
The girl, a Class IX student, migrated to the city from Uttar Pradesh along with her parents, who are labourers, about six years ago. The family is staying at a construction site.
According to the Dundigal police, the incident occurred when the girl was in the house taking care of her younger sibling while her parents were out at work. The suspect, Akshay Lal (40), who works at a workshop, allegedly lured her with eatables and money, and forcibly took her to his house and raped her.
However, the victim, out of fear, did not reveal it to anyone. When the girl’s mother grew suspicious of her behaviour and questioned her, she narrated the incident. The mother later took her to hospital where she was medically examined. The Dundigal police booked a case.
