Hyderabad: An 18-year-old girl was allegedly raped by an auto rickshaw driver on the pretext of taking her to her grandmother's house, police said here on Friday
They said the girl and her 10-year-old sister lost their way while going to their grandmother's house from their home on the night of December 8.
The man's elder brother, also an autorickshaw driver, spotted them and took them to his house. However he was ticked off by his mother, who asked her younger son to take the girls back home.

The teenager managed to call a relative after which they were reunited with her family.
