An unidentified person barged into the Osmania University Engineering College women's hostel and misbehaved with an inmate, and also threatened her with a knife, creating a scare among the women of the hostel.
According to the OU police authorities, the intruder entered the women's hostel from the back in the wee hours of Thursday. On seeing a girl student going into the bathroom, he bolted the bathroom from outside, entered the bathroom from the rooftop, and threatened her with a knife and misbehaved with her.
Hearing the cries of the girl, other inmates rushed there. The intruder then snatched the mobile phone of the student and ran away from the scene.
Police officials who reached the spot deployed the dog squad and the Clues team to trace the culprit. They found the mobile phone abandoned outside the rear compound wall of the hostel.
Scared hostel inmates demanded that the security at the hostel be strengthened. They said that the lack of CC cameras behind the hostel had become a problem.
