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.
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.
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.
