As the Hyderabad city police is all set to take up investigation into the gangrape of a Mumbai-based model in Hyderabad, investigators will begin their probe by taking the victim around the city to know the exact location where the offence took place.
Being new to Hyderabad, the victim was unable to identify the house where she was gangraped by four persons. A team of Mumbai police, with whom she lodged a complaint, is arriving in Hyderabad on Friday to handover the probe to their counterparts here and also assist them.
The 26-year-old Mumbai-based model, who arrived in Hyderabad on December 30 for performing on the New Year eve at a city hotel, was picked up by the accused from the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, driven to an unknown place where she was gangraped.
‘’The victim was new to the city and therefore is unable to tell where she was taken by the accused that night after being given drink laced with sedatives. Once we take her around, she may be able to lead us to the scene of offence,’’ sources associated with the investigation disclosed.
The Versova senior police inspector Harishachandra Raghunath Parmale told Express over phone that the investigation officer and assistant police inspector Vijay Chouhan who received the complaint from the victim and registered cases left for Hyderabad on Thursday and would hand over the case to Hyderabad police for further investigation.
When contacted, Hyderabad police commissioner Anurag Sharma told Express that the Mumbai police has so far not contacted him with regard to the case.
‘’Once the case is transferred to us, we will take up investigation,’’ Sharma added.
Sources said that besides taking the victim around the city to identity the place where the offence was committed, investigators will also make enquiries with hotel and resort owners.
