A 21-year-old architecture student was attacked by her distant relative at Vattinagulapally under Gachibowli police station here in the wee hours of Thursday.

She started shouting, as a result her parents entered the room, caught Prem and alerted the neighbours, who in turn roughed him up before handing him to the police,” an officer said.
