Hyderabad: The Chandrayangutta police on Saturday arrested two persons on charges of kidnapping and raping an 18-year-old five days ago.

The two suspects were identified as Mohammed Moosa (21), a private employee, and Mohammed Amair, an autorickshaw driver.

According to the police, on December 8, the victim along with her sister, were standing at the Hashamabad road to go to their grandmother, who lived in Nayi Basthi in Hashamabad when Amair approached them, offering a lift. He however took them in his auto to his house at Vattepally – three kilometres away from Hashamabad.

“Amair confined the siblings there. Around 11 pm, his younger brother Moosa, who returned from work found the siblings in the house. He waited for the younger girl to sleep and later raped the victim,” said the police.

The next morning, Moosa took his brother’s auto and took the victim and her sister to a secluded place behind the Falaknuma railway station and dropped them there. He escaped from the place saying he would come back after parking the vehicle. The teenager, with the help of a few locals, called up her family members over phone and informed them, before managing to return home.
