Banjara hills police on Saturday registered a case of outraging a woman's modesty under section 354 against SC-ST & Tribal minister Ravela Kishore Babu's son after a complaint by a woman teacher.
The victim who works as a teacher at a private school in Banjara Hills, is a resident of Ambedkarnagar. She complained against the minister’s son and his driver for misbehaving with her on Thursday evening when she was on her way from school and was passing though Road No 13. The teacher also informed the police that the car that was following her had a ‘MLA’ sticker on it.
In her complaint, the victim said that the minister’s son Susheel Ravela and the driver of the car were drunk and passed comments on her. Later they asked her to get inside the car while one of them even tried to pull her inside.
However, Susheel claimed innocence through his Facebook post, which he put out on Saturday morning. He wrote:
“Dear friends, I am here to tell you the actual truth. The events which are being portrayed in the news channels are completely made up and totally false. That afternoon on our way down from my quarters I stopped my vehicle suddenly as soon as I saw a little puppy crossing the road in front of my car. As I am really fond of pets, I went and picked it up after which the lady who was near the vehicle without any specific reason started abusing and shouting. Even before I could react, she created a scene because of which people started gathering. She misused the situation and misled the crowd because of which they lost control and started manhandling me. The incident was resolved yesterday itself but it was stretched till this evening. The crowd joined hands with unknown people whose only intention was political vengeance. This incident is a cruel act by our political opponents. Please do not give in to the false news.”
Ravela Kishore Babu in a press conference on Saturday told the media, ‘’that case was booked on my son in Banjara Hills PS on Friday evening and Telangana police are investigating the case. I will only believe when it’s proved in the investigation and I am sure that truth will come out through investigation. Meanwhile I will not get involved in the process but whoever involved in such kind of things, I will not tolerate even if it’s my son’’.
When The News Minute tried reaching the police, they said they are still investigating the case and are observing the CCTV footage. As soon as the case is resolved, we will announce details of the culprits, a senior officer said.
