Angry protesters, who had gathered outside the Shadnagar police station where the accused in the Telangana doctor rape and murder case were lodged, hurled slippers and stones at the police officers after they did not let them enter the police station.
The police officials tried to pacify the agitating protesters but when they did not budge, the cops resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the protestors.
As the situation outside the Shadnagar police station became tense, all the accused in the Telangana rape and murder case were shifted to Chanchalguda Central Jail. Stones were also hurled at the police vehicle in which the accused were being taken to the jail in Hyderabad.
The students of government schools in Hyderabad also took part in the protests in the Shamshabad area against the alleged rape and murder of the veterinary doctor on Wednesday night.
- NOTHING LESS THAN DEATH PENALTY: NCW
National Commission for Women team on Saturday reached the residence of the veterinarian who was raped and murdered in Cyberabad. Speaking with ANI, NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma said the accused should not get less than “hang till death”.
“We have a judicial system which will be followed. But it should not be delayed and nothing less than ‘hang till death’. They should be hanged and the case should go in fast track court,” she said.
She further said the family told the NCW team that the police did not listen to them and kept fighting over jurisdiction of the case.
“Family told that the role of the police was negative. Police didn’t listen to them, they were saying that she must have eloped. They were fighting over jurisdiction, under whose jurisdiction it comes in. This caused a delay. They could have saved a life,” Rekha Sharma said.
- TELANGANA RAPE-MURDER CASE
A 26-year-old veterinary surgeon was gang-raped and murdered in Shamshabad by four men on Wednesday night. According to the Cyberabad Police, the four accused punctured the rear wheel of her scooter, offered to help her, dragged her to a secluded spot close to a toll plaza and gang-raped her.
The Cyberabad Police, in a press conference on Friday, said the accused had seen the doctor parking her scooter at the Shamshabad toll plaza and hatched the plan over drinks.
On Saturday, top police sources told India Today TV that the accused had forced the Telangana doctor to consume a liquor-laced cold drink before committing the crime. The doctor died of suffocation after which, the accused brought petrol and burned her body.
The doctor’s charred body was found on Thursday morning at around 7 am under a culvert in Chatanpally on the Hyderabad-Bengaluru national highway. The accused were nabbed from their houses on Friday.
