4 Accused in Hyderabad rape murder case killed in encounter

The four men accused of raping and murdering a veterinarian in Hyderabad were killed in an encounter in the early hours of Friday. The encounter took place around 3.30 am, when the accused were trying to flee while being taken to the murder site to reconstruct the sequence of events, reported. The accused allegedly snatched a weapon and fired at the police. They tried to run towards a deserted pathway, an unidentified official told. The four accused were shot dead on NH-44 near Hyderabad - the same highway where the charred body of 26-year-old was found.

Two policemen were also injured, he said. The four men, all lorry workers, aged between 20 and 24, were arrested on November 29 for raping and killing the woman by smothering her and later burning her body.They were remanded to 7 days' judicial custody. Reacting to the killing of the four accused in the encounter, the victim's sister said they welcomed it.

“We are happy. We did not expect this (killing in encounter). We thought they would be hanged through courts. "We thank everyone who stood by us. With this incident people should be scared to indulge in such crimes (against women),” she told reporters.
