GUNTUR:  Pedakakani police, on Wednesday, registered a case against an engineering student, Praveen Kumar, of Acharya Nagarjuna University (ANU), under IPC sections 342 (Punishment for wrongful confinement), 323 (Voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (Criminal intimidation If threat be to cause death or grievous hurt, etc.) 356 (Assault or criminal force in attempt to commit theft of property carried by a person) following the complaint by a second year engineering girl student against him of assaulting and threatening her, on the campus, on Tuesday.

According to Pedakakani Circle Inspector Sesha Rao, both the students, despite having good terms, had an argument, on Tuesday, with the boy objecting to her leaving the campus without informing him. The argument led the boy to slap her and threaten her of serious consequences in case she fails to obey his orders henceforth. This resulted in the girl approaching the university officials, who in turn forwarded the complaint to the police.

The police after taking a preliminary inquiry along with the officials of the ANU registered a case against the boy. Police also arrested the boy and let him off on station bail.
