Hyderabad: The 22-year-old woman employee of an IT company who was kidnapped at Hitec City on Friday, was raped by the two cabbies the same night.

Read here: Rapists were on pleasure trip

During the four-hour ordeal, the woman was driven to an isolated mango grove at Kollur in Medak district where she was raped. The car crossed at least four junctions, three toll booths and drove along at least 22 km of the ORR with the frightened victim inside the locked car.

DC poll: The rape of a techie in Hyd shows that the new anti-rape Act has no meaning. Comment.

After the rape, the bleeding victim was dropped at her hostel at Gowlidoddi. The rapists threatened that she and her family would be hurt if she tried to resist or report the crime to the police. These facts emerged on Tuesday after the Cyberabad police held two people.

Beware of private cabs in Hyderabad

The incident highlights how necessary it is to have safe public transport. The woman came out of the Inorbit Mall in Hitec City at 7.30 pm and took a bus to Mindspace junction, where she waited for transport to her hostel. She waited more than half an hour without getting any transport.

The two men wanted for the rape of a woman in Hitec City area were arrested three days later by Cyberabad police after a wide-ranging operation. The police even took the help of the National Investigation Agency to trace the Volvo car in which the woman was kidnapped by the men posing as a taxi driver and passenger.

The police checked 50,000 driving licences and 77 Volvo cars in the state. A four-second, blurred CCTV grab of the car was the vital clue. Special teams were formed directly under Commissioner of Police C.V. Anand to conduct the investigation.

The CCTV footage of the car came from a camera installed at the Birla Open Minds School by the management. The woman was raped in a mango grove near the school.

why do police hide the identity of the culprits? We need to know their identity and they need to be exposed to the world

Both the men are from Telangana districts and the woman is from Guntur. Seemandhra women are capable of faking rape and blaming it on Telangana men. Telangana men are simple minded and innocent. The entire police department is dominated by Andhra police officers. Is there a conspiracy here ?

The capital is virtually becoming crime centre despite the efforts of the police force. It is all due to using police force as security to almost all political leaders including ex-ministers. Where is the need of Z + security to some of them as status symbol , when common man's mothers, sisters, daughters and their neighbours get molested and gang raped? One feels happy to hear that the Hyderabad police could nab the culprits in a very short time. Why should the rapists allowed to cover their faces with black mask a shown in the TVs Let public see their faces and recognize so that all will know what type of neighbours we have with us. Kudos to Andhra Police.
