Indian rape, murder accused shot dead by police after 'escape attempt'

India: Police shoot dead 4 suspects in rape and murder case

Cyberabad police commissioner VC Sajjanar told BBC Telugu's Satish Balla that police took the accused to the scene to reconstruct the crime.

The Telangana High Court on Friday directed authorities to preserve, till December 9, the bodies of all the four accused gunned down by police near Shadnagar town during an investigation into a woman veterinarian's gangrape and murder.

"They were killed in crossfire".

However, political leaders and other prominent people have been speaking in different voices over the police action, with some saying that it will send a stern message to culprits, while others questioned the police claim and condemned the "extra-judicial killings".

The four accused killed in the encounter were lorry drivers Mohammed Pasha alias Arif, Chintakunta Chennakeshavulu and lorry cleaners Jollu Shiva and Jollu Naveen.

Sean Robertson, a Pentagon spokesman, said a US warship inspection discovered a cache of weapons and advanced missile components. In May, last year, Washington withdrew from the deal and has since then imposed several sanctions on Tehran.


The Cyberabad Police had said its personnel had resorted to "retaliatory" firing after two of the accused opened fire at them by snatching their weapons besides attacking the latter with stones and sticks, resulting in injuries to two policemen.

Last week, three police officers were suspended when the victim's family accused them of not acting quickly enough when the woman was reported missing.

The fatal shooting comes a day after a rape victim in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, was set on fire as she made her way to a case hearing.

On Saturday morning, police were still at the scene outside Hyderabad in southern India as motorists stopped their cars on the busy highway to look and take photos with their phones.

Her neighbours distributed candies and burst firecrackers.

"Let all know this is the country where good will always prevail over evil", a former minister and current MP from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party wrote on Twitter. "Instead of investigation and prosecution the state is committing murders to distract public and avoid accountability", she said.

Elsewhere in the country, there were other protests and vigils for the victim, who can not be named under Indian law.

"You can not kill people because you want to".

The father of another called the deaths a "cold-blooded killing. Fake encounter is not the solution, reforming criminal justice system is", Utsav Bains, a Supreme Court lawyer, told AFP. This is because the reactionary urge to mete out instant justice is ignorant of the reality that neither the Nirbhaya rape case nor the gruesome incident in Hyderabad is typical of routine sexual crimes in India.
