The victim, a post-graduate II year student, is the daughter of an Indian diplomat and a native of Delhi. At 2 am on Sunday, the victim lodged a complaint with the Osmania University police alleging that she was gang-raped by two men in a room at Basheer Men’s Hostel on October 31 night.
The culprits were identified as Nitin Solasamudram, 21, a native of Hindupur in Anantapur, and K Raj Simha, 24, a native of Malkipuram in Razole mandal of East Godavari district. Nitin, a first year student of communication and journalism course at Eflu, has been staying at Basheer Hostel and the offence happened in his hostel room. Raj Simha, who resides in APHB quarters in Bagh Lingampally, is an ex-student of Eflu and Nitin’s friend, police said.
At 10 pm on October 31, according to police, the victim went to Basheer Hostel to meet one of her friends. However, her friend was not there and meanwhile, the duo, who met her in the hostel corridor, invited her to their room for a party. As the two were her acquaintances, the victim accepted their invitation.
In her complaint to the police, the victim alleged that the duo raped her when she was in an intoxicated condition. The victim woke up the next morning around 10 am in Nitin’s room and realised that something had gone wrong and that she was sexually assaulted. She called up Nitin to find out what had happened the previous night. As he was giving evasive replies, she discussed the issue with her other friends and confronted Nitin who initially feigned ignorance and later admitted that she was sexually assaulted by them, she told the police in her complaint.
A case was registered against the two.
