Hyderabad: A man was arrested by the Kakatiya University Campus police on charges of raping a 19-year-old woman near the Komatpally toll plaza.
According to the statement of ACP Kiran Kumar, the accused, K Anvesh, a resident of Hanamkonda, was taken into custody following a complaint registered by the victim’s parents.
“Avnesh was known to the victim’s friend Akhil and the trio had gone to Ramappa temple and was returning to Hanamkonda when the incident occurred,” the police officer said.
