The accused had planned the abduction after noticing that the victim had parked her two-wheeler at the Tondupally toll plaza. Assuming that she would come to pick it up later in the evening, they deflated the tyre.

“The accused had consumed alcohol and noticed the veterinary doctor parking her bike at the toll plaza around 6 pm. They hatched a plan and one of them deflated her scooter’s tyre. When the victim returned, another got down from his truck and told her about the flat tyre. After offering to help, a third accused took the bike on the pretext of getting it repaired. Then, they forcibly took the victim into an abandoned room nearby, where she was raped,” Cyberabad Police Commissioner V C Sajjanar said earlier.
