A 17-year-old girl was returning from a party when she was allegedly sexually assaulted by a group of youngsters in a moving vehicle in the Jubilee Hills area on 28 May.

According to the complaint filed by the victim's father, his daughter went to a party at Amnesia & Insomnia Pub located on Road No. 36, Jubilee Hills. At about 5.30 p.m, a few guys in a red Mercedes took her out of the pub and misbehaved with her. They also inflicted minor injuries on her neck.

Police initially registered a case of "outraging the modesty" based on a complaint lodged by the victim's family three days ago. The investigators sent the girl for medical examination. When the woman officers at the Bharosa center interacted with the minor, she reportedly revealed the sexual assault.
