HYDERABAD: Four women, including two minors, were sexually assaulted and three of them brutally murdered by the assailants, causing concern about the safety of women in the state on Sunday.

Three of the incidents occurred in Hyderabad, while a newly-wedded woman was kidnapped in Karimnagar after assaulting her father. She was murdered allegedly after she resisted an attempt to rape.

It is said that he was involved in a rape and murder case in Medak district and was arrested by the police there. He was released on bail as the case is still in trial stage.
