Hyderabad: Rajendranagar Police arrested Sikander on the charges of dragging a woman by an auto on the road for nearly100 metres in Attapur. It must be recalled that the video of woman getting dragged went viral.
According to Rajendranagar inspector V Umender Shameema Begum, 28 and Reshma, 25, were fighting in an intoxicated condition near Hyderguda X Roads. As Reshma was pregnant and had a toddler, locals stopped Sikander’s auto and made her sit in it. Meanwhile Shameema tried to get into the vehicle to take Reshma’s cell phone, but Reshma told the auto driver to start the vehicle. Sikander drove the auto towards Rethibowli without knowing that Shameema is holding the auto’s iron rod and getting dragged on the road.
As the onlookers shouted from behind Sikander stopped and once Shameema released the grip on the iron rod, he started the auto again and dropped Reshma at her house.
Sikander was arrested by the police from Chintalmet on Thursday under section 337 of the IPC.
