Hyderabad: A man, who used to lure girl students to the city outskirts on the pretext of providing them software jobs and then allegedly robbed them by threatening to rape them, was arrested today.

Revelly Swaraj was nabbed at Ghatkesar here with which police cracked eight cases of robberies and recovered 180 gram of gold ornaments and a cell phone, all worth Rs four lakh, from him, Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad East, Mahesh Muralidhar Bhagwat said.

Swaraj, a native of Telangana’s Karimnagar district and a businessman, is a frequent visitor to computer institutes at Mythrivanam and S R Nagar areas here.

He used to interact with girl students who came out of the computer institutes and induced them by offering jobs in software companies by claiming that his sister is working as HR Manager in such IT companies, the top cop said.

In night hours, Swaraj used to take the girl students near the leading IT firms at Pocharam, Dundigal and also at Gachibowli areas.

“From there he would take them to isolated places and threaten them of committing rape if they do not hand over the gold ornaments and thus robbed the gold items from the victims and would later flee,” the Commissioner explained.
