Complaint filed under POCSO

As per the complaint filed, the girl went to attend a party hosted by her friends at the Amnesia & Insomnia Pub in Jubilee Hills on May 28. A few men offered her a lift at 5.30 pm in a red luxury car along with one SUV. They misbehaved with her, the complaing says, adding that she also sustained bruises and injuries on her neck.   

Action should be taken against the five accused, said K.Krishna Sagar Rao, BJP Chief Spokesperson, Telangana. "BJP is demanding the arrest of the five criminals and I am questioning why the police of Hyderabad haven't arrested despite the fact the car is impounded and the complaint has been lodged on June 1 by the parents of the girl."

'Police has a soft corner towards the ruling class': Congress 

Prof Dasoju Srravan, Spokesperson of the Congress in Telangana, said it's the misfortune of the people that those associated with the ruling class are found to be engaging in such incidents. "The police has a soft corner towards the ruling party leaders and their allies. We demand stern action should be taken and should be punished however big the particular person is."
