What may be perceived as a case of impassive attitude in dealing with sexual abuse cases, the Moinabad police has finally registered a case under Nirbhaya Act against the accused rowdy Sheeter Bathuku Madhusudan @ Madhu Yadav in a repulsive case of rape and murder of a poor girl, who commits suicide after being tormented four days ago in Moinabad Mandal under Rangareddy District.
