Four minors accused in the Jubilee Hills gangrape case here in May can be tried as adults in view of the grave nature of their offence, a Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) said on Friday. The fifth accused, also a minor, would continue to be treated so as the offence alleged against him was not heinous.

Police had already filed the charge-sheet in the case. Six people — an 18-year-old and five CCL (child in conflict with law) were apprehended in connection with the teen gangrape case. Five of them were involved in the sexual assault of the 17-year-old girl on May 28. All the six are currently on bail.

The teenage girl, who visited a pub for a day-time party, was allegedly sexually assaulted in a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) after the 18-year-old and five CCLs had offered to drop her home in the vehicle.
