A 30-year-old systems engineer was arrested for allegedly confining and sexually assaulting a former colleague, who he wanted to marry against her wishes, police said on Tuesday.

Hyderabad Police found the 27-year-old woman, in shock and with bruises, at a flat in Tolichowki area here. The police raided the flat after she managed to send an SMS and posted an SOS on social media, alerting her friends about the situation.

Officers at Humayunagar police station said Syed Emad Hasan physically and sexually assaulted the woman for five days to force her to convert to Islam and marry him.

Hasan, from Aligarh, did his BTech from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, and started working at an MNC. In June, the woman, who had completed a chartered accountancy course, joined the company as an intern. They became friends, and Hasan soon proposed to her, the police said. The woman refused.

In August, the woman left the company and moved to Dubai, where she got another job. However, Hasan allegedly started pestering her, insisting she talk to him every night over Skype. “The woman told us she was forced to talk to Hasan as he showed her photos and videos of them together in Hyderabad, and threatened to send them to her father. He also demanded that she send inappropriate photos of her,” Inspector S Ravinder said.

Unable to deal with the threats, the woman reportedly decided to go to Hyderabad and ask Hasan to give her the photos and videos. He promised to do so if she met him, the police said.

On December 14, Hasan picked her up from Hyderabad airport. “He took her to the flat in Al-Hasanath colony and confined her. He took three days’ leave and brutalised and sexually assaulted her. He threatened to continue doing so until she agreed to marry him after converting to Islam. He even threatened to set her on fire and strangle her,” an officer of the Hyderabad ‘She Team’ said.

“On December 20, the woman managed to use Hasan’s phone to send a text message to her friends, and used his laptop to post an SOS on social media. Her friends then alerted her brother, who informed the police. We found her in the bathroom with injuries on her head and body. She was scared and in shock, but managed to narrate her ordeal. Hasan said they were lovers, but the woman appears very scared in his presence,’’ the official said. Photos and videos of the woman were found on his mobile phone and laptop.

              Why no debate on TV? Why no media outrage? What if the girl was a muslim and guy hindu? Then all politicians would show sympathy. Media will give coverage. Hindus have no rights in India anymore!

                Being an educated girl she should have sensed trouble and avoided going alone unless she knows some martial art.

                      "for five days to force her to convert to Islam "...... And the "secular" pigs say that there is no such thing as love jihad. It should be changed to rape jihad.

                            of course.. the issue is that the girl was not smart enough to sense danger. She is CLEARLY the one at fault here. POOR Hasan..all he did was ault the girl for 3 days, right?

                              That's right, it's the girl's fault. What's your thoughts on what the man did? Would it hurt you to criticise your co-religionist? :(

                                        They don't have right to fall in love who force conversion. They don't know the meaning of love. If you love so much your religion please marry according to its teaching. You guys are shame of the society. You are techie. opted for modern technology but could make yourself and your mind modern.

                                          He is a Muslim. That should explain his behaviour.
