All the four accused of Hyderabad Doctor rape-murder case were shot dead in the same place where vicitm’s body was burnt after she was gangraped and murdered. They had been taken to the scene of the crime at Chatanpally, nearly 50 km away from Hyderabad, on Thursday to collect evidence of the crime.
DCP Prakash Reddy, who is at the scene of the incident, told media, that there was crossfire as the accused took the guns of the policemen and attempted to escape. The incident happened between 6 and 6.30 am, he said.
The Hyderabad police on Monday had filed a petition in a local court at Shadnagar seeking 10-day custody of the accused for a more comprehensive interrogation. The court, on Wednesday, had granted a seven-day police custody of the accused.
On November 27, Vicitm, a 26-year-old veterinarian doctor from Hyderabad was gangraped and killed allegedly by the four-member gang, who are natives of Narayanpet district, at Thondupally toll gate on Outer Ring Road, Shamshabad.
The gang who were driving a lorry had trapped her by deflating one of the tyres of her two-wheeler which she had parked near the toll gate. Around 9 pm, when she reached the spot to take her vehicle she noticed that the tyre was punctured. The men approached her saying they would help her fix the tyre. They forcibly took her to nearby bushes, assaulted and killed her.
After killing her, they burned her body at Chatanpally village under Shadnagar police station limits, a few kms away from the place where she was murdered.
