Hyderabad: Rachakonda police SHE-teams have arrested 74 eve-teasers and registered 77 cases in the last three months.

Of the arrested eve-teasers, 55 are majors and 19 minors.

Eve-teasers were caught by Rachakonda SHE teams in decoy operations and through WhatsApp/SMUC complaints from different areas of Rachakonda. They were teasing girls at different locations including metro train/ junctions/ bus stops/working places and colleges in the Rachakonda area.

The eve-teasers attended the counseling session conducted by Rachakonda SHE teams at the Commissioner Camp office, Nagole, LB Nagar, along with their family members. They were counseled by professional counselors from the Bhumika Women's Collective, an NGO.

Police said the children in conflict with the law will also be counseled by a professional psychiatrist to bring change in their behavior.

Sample this: A 30-year-old woman working as a lecturer in a private college got acquainted with Mohammed Aslam, a resident of Manchal Mandal in Rangareddy, through Facebook.

After some time, they starting talking to each other and making video calls. One day, he proposed and promised to marry her. The girl too fell into his trap.

Police said during one of the video calls, he asked to pose nude. He recorded videos without her knowledge. Then he started blackmailing her. She gave Rs.10000 to him for deleting the pictures and videos.
