In a shocking CCTV footage that has surfaced online, a 25-year-old realtor named Cheruku Rahul Goud is seen brutally attacking a married woman with an Axe at her residence in Teacher’s Colony, Meerpet, Hyderabad.

The incident occurred on Monday at around 6:45 pm. Goud was arrested by Meerpet Police on Wednesday. An axe and scooter used in committing the crime were seized.
According to the police, Goud, a resident of Abdullapurmet village, had met the 28-year-old victim ‘Vimala’ through a family friend. Since then, he used to visit her house to attend their family functions and received her contact number.
Soon, the accused started to harass her over calls and asked her for sexual advances. After Goud visited her house and threatened to defame her in front of her husband, the victim lodged a complaint under ‘Nirbhaya Act’ against him with Meerpet Police.
The accused was arrested and remanded into judicial custody. However, he didn’t stop there. He bore a grudge against Vimala and plotted to murder her.
On Monday, Goud purchased an axe from a roadside shop near BN Reddy crossroads and went to her house, attacked her and fled.
The footage shows the victim holding a baby, while Goud approaches her in a two-wheeler and rushes behind her with an axe.
“We formed two special teams, one each to collect technical evidence and questioning witnesses. With the help of footage from surveillance cameras at the house and surrounding areas, he was identified and caught from his house in Abdullapurmet,” a police official informed.
“We are trying to take up this case in a fast track court and get him punished. We have filed a memo in this regard with the concerned authorities,” he added.
The victim suffered bleeding injuries on her right shoulder, elbow and palm and was rushed to a private hospital. Her condition is reportedly stable.
