HYDERABAD: A day after an activist posted a video online of five men who allegedly gangraped a woman, the window screens of her car were today found damaged in Charminar area here.

Police have registered a case in this connection and suspect it to be a mischief.

Sunitha Krishnan, chief functionary of a city-based NGO 'Prajwala', had yesterday posted a video on a social networking site of five youths, who had allegedly raped a woman, as part of a campaign to 'shame the rapists' and ensure punishment to them.

Sunitha said the nearly 8-minute video was shared with her on a mobile messaging service which she had posted online after editing it to one minute.

"We don't know when it was shot. I came to office this morning. However, someone told me that the window screens of my four-wheeler were stoned. I lodged a complaint with police in this regard," she said.

"I feel that someone is trying to intimidate me but I'm not going to get intimidated. Some more such videos will be posted online soon," she said.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (Charminar division) K Ashok Chakrawarthy said following a complaint they have registered a case under section 427 (mischief causing damage) of IPC and taken up investigation.

Sunitha had parked her vehicle at a college premises near the Charminar bus stop.

A police team visited the spot and found that the window screens of the vehicle were stoned, he said, adding, that they suspect it to be a mischief.

"It is a crowded area and 15 to 20 other vehicles were parked in the place. It is not possible for someone to throw a stone and run away. It seems to be a mischief...we are probing the matter," the ACP said.
