Huge crowd was witnessed near Shadnagar town at the spot where the body of the Hyderabad vet was burnt. It is the same spot where Hyderabad police had shot the accused in the gruesome gangrape and murder of the young lady doctor. Meanwhile, people at the spot were seen raising slogans and cheering for the police action on the accused. The killing of all four accused by the police was hailed by people who were demanding justice for the victim.
Some of them said the police delivered "instant justice" by eliminating the perpetrators of the gruesome crime.
After committing the gang-rape at Shamshabad near Hyderabad on the night of November 27, the accused had dumped the body and set it afire at Chatanpally near Shadnagar, about 50 kms from Hyderabad.
The police gunned down all the four accused at the same place, where they were taken by the investigating officials to recreate the crime scene.
