HYDERABAD: Cyber crime sleuths of Cyberabad police arrested four persons on Friday for sharing a video clipping of the gang-rape victim videographed by the ‘snake gang’ through WhatsApp. They had sent the video to Mohammed Akber Shareef who was  arrested earlier.

The four were identified as Syed bin Salam(34), Mohammed bin Ibrahim(40), Mohsin Omer Aljabri(50) and Habeeb Osman Alkaf (45), all residents of King Koti. Four cellphones were seized from them.

The gang-rape took place in a farmhouse at Pahadishareef in the old city on July 31 and was videographed by the ‘snake gang’ members. A clipping was aired by a few news channels following which a case was registered under Section 509 of IPC and Sections 66(A) and 76 (A) of Information Technology Act. Syed Imran Ali (26) and Mohammed Aleemuddin (45) were arrested on Monday for sharing the video clipping. In a massive operation recently, Cyberabad police had arrested five members of a ‘snake gang’ for their alleged involvement in a gang-rape and other crimes by terrorising people with snakes.

Faisal Dayani, a gym instructor, and seven others were arrested last month for the alleged gang-rape of a girl in front of her fiance at a guest-house. They allegedly threatened the victims with a snake and also filmed the crime on their mobile phones.

Investigation revealed that the gang was involved in several crimes including extortion and settlement of disputes. Police have received five complaints against the gang.
