The safety of women has become a serious issue of concern for the government as well as society and it seems to have become necessary for girls to make sure that they avoid such circumstances and situations which can be dangerous for them. For example, nowadays we are witnessing that many times, the accused first becomes friends with the victim through social media sites and when the victim is ready to meet him alone, then he commits the crime.
Girls should be choosy while making friends on social media sites and even if they meet those friends, they shouldn’t go alone and ensure that the meeting happens in a public place.
Hyderabad police has arrested a man known as Kandakatla Bikshapathi (23) for allegedly raping a 19-yr girl inside a cinema hall.
Kandakatla is a JCB driver by profession and he got in touch with the girl 2 months back through Facebook. As per a report in Indian Express, they both went to watch “Padmaavat” in Prashanth theatre.
The victim’s private parts are badly injured and she is undergoing treatment.
Circle inspector Mathaiah stated,
“The girl was raped inside a movie theatre. Two months back, the victim and the accused became friends through social media.”
“While the girl was watching the movie, the accused assaulted her. The girl went home and informed about it to her parents.”
Police also said that the accused wanted to take advantage of the fact that there was not much crowd in the cinema hall.
