The son of an influential politician is said to be one of the two minors. Meanwhile, Telangana Governor Tamlisai Sundararajan has directed the Chief Secretary and the DGP to submit a detailed report within two days. According to the allegations, the victim girl was allegedly raped by five people on May 28, three of whom are minors. Opposition parties, the BJP and the Congress, on the other hand, have started pressing for a CBI inquiry into the matter.
The pressure on the administration increased
Earlier, the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) had sought clarification from the police on the delay in registering an FIR in the case and asked them to take action against the erring officer. At the same time, the commission had asked to register an FIR against the Hyderabad pub management for admitting minors in the pub.
On the other hand, the BJP’s Telangana unit has issued a statement accusing the leaders of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-e-Muslimeen (AIMIM) and Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) of being involved in the matter. The BJP and the Congress have demanded a CBI inquiry into the incident so that a fair investigation can take place. BJP leaders have also submitted a memorandum to Director General of Police Mahendra Reddy in this regard.
