All four accused in the gang-rape and murder of woman veterinarian in Telangana have been killed in an encounter with the police, ANI reported.
According to reports, the accused were taken by the police to the scene of crime to reconstruct what had happened when two of the accused reportedly tried to escape.
The police claim they had to shoot to prevent them from doing so and in self-defence.
The mobile phone of the Shadnagar rape-murder victim was recovered yesterday from near the spot close to the toll plaza where she was raped and killed on Wednesday last. The police also took the suspects to the scene of offences at Thondupally and Chatanpally for reconstruction of the crime scene.
The Telangana government on Wednesday issued orders for setting up a fast track court to try the four men accused of the gang rape and murder of a woman veterinarian last month, even as protests continued over the incident in Hyderabad and other parts of the state.
