All four accused in the rape-and-murder case of a 25-year-old woman veterinarian were shot dead in an encounter by the Telangana police during the early hours of Friday.

According to the police, the accused were killed in an exchange of fire which also saw two policemen sustain injuries.

Th incident took place around 6:30 AM on Friday, when the accused were taken to the site of the offence for reconstruction of the crime scene as a part of the investigation, a senior police official told news agencies.

“They (accused) snatched weapons from police and fired on police and tried to escape… police fired in retaliation in which the four accused died,” a senior police official told PTI.

The four men, all lorry workers, 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.

Victim’s family is understood to have welcomed the encounter of the accused. “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.

The gang rape and murder had initiated a nation-wide outrage with the public and lawmakers demanding justice in forms of a speedy punishment to the perpetrators.

The state government had ordered setting up of a special court (fast track) to expedite the trial.
