Hyderabad, May 1 (IANS) A minor girl was allegedly raped by a cinema theatre worker here on Tuesday, police said.
The 13-year-old girl had gone to the theatre in Borabanda area under Sanatnagar police station limits to fetch water when the worker sexually assaulted her.
Police have arrested accused identified as Prasad, 25, who works as a sweeper at Vijetha theatre.
According to police, the victim, the daughter of a labourer, had gone to the theatre to fetch water as the slum adjacent to the theatre has no water supply.
