Hyderabad gangrape: One person has been arrested and five of the accused were identified in the case of a gang-rape of a 17-year-old girl inside a Mercedes in Hyderabad, informed the police. Three of the accused identified were minors, police said on Friday.

Hyderabad West Zone DCP Joel Davis said that allegations that the Home Minister's son-in-law is involved, are baseless. 

"Victim couldn’t reveal anything about culprits. She only revealed one name & special teams were immediately formed to nab them," Davis said. "CCTV footage has been recovered. We've identified 5 culprits as per CCTV footage and as per the statement of the victim," he said. 

The minor girl was allegedly gang-raped inside a luxury car by five teenagers in Hyderabad's posh Jubilee Hills area last Saturday.  According to sources, students from Class 11 and 12 from influential families, were allegedly involved in the incident. 

The minor girl had gone to a pub along with a friend. As her friend had left early, she befriended a boy during the party. He along with his friends promised to drop her home. They stopped at a pastry shop en route and later parked the Mercedes car in Jubilee Hills, where five boys sexually assaulted her while others stood guard outside the car.

The incident came to light when the girl's father noticed injuries on her neck and enquired about it. She told him that some boys attacked her after a party at a pub.

On the complaint by the victim's father, police on Wednesday registered a case under section 354 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and took up an investigation.
