Senior arrested for sodomising junior at Hyderabad varsity

Police have arrested a senior student for sexually assaulting his junior at the University of Hyderabad here, on Friday.

Gachibowli police received a complaint from 19-year-old Sagnik Puri, an Integrated Master of Arts (IMA) student, that Mohammad Rinish, a 27-year-old senior, entered his hostel room on January 7 and sexually assaulted him after bolting the door. Police registered a case of unnatural sex (IPC 377) against Rinish, a native of Kerala.

According to Gachibowli DCP P Viswaprasad, the incident saw light only after the university completed its preliminary probe. The victim had complained to the university authorities, who in turn completed their probe before allowing the victim to file a police complaint. According to the complaint, Rinish entered the victim's hostel room around 11.30 pm and forced himself on the victim and had unnatural sex.

The victim said he knew his attacker, who entered his room while he was filling up an application for the Global Initiative of Academic Networks, an event slated to happen at IIT-Kharagpur. The police have arrested Rinish and sent him to judicial remand.

"The student concerned has been sent a show cause notice and asked to appear before the board on January 17," the statement said.
