The Cyberabad Police Tuesday arrested a car driver and his friend for allegedly raping a 22-year-old software professional on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday last.

The woman,who had recently joined an IT firm,was on her way to her hostel and was waiting to hire a vehicle near a shopping mall in Madhapur when Satish Kumar,driver of a luxury car owned by a businessman,approached her and offered a lift. Kumar’s friend Venkat was also in the car. Instead of dropping her to her hostel,the duo allegedly drove to Kolluru in Medak district and allegedly raped her. Based on CCTV camera footage,police identified the car and arrested the duo.

Cyberabad Police Commissioner C V Anand said the footage showed a Volvo car passing on Madhapur road at 12:05 am and returning at 1:18 am. “The footage was grainy so we took the help of officials of NIA and were able to identify the make and colour of the car which led to arrest of the duo,’’ Anand said.
