The four accused in the rape and murder of a 26-year-old veterinarian in Hyderabad were killed by the police in the early hours of Friday at the spot where the victim’s charred body had earlier been found.
According to sources, the four men – Mohammad Arif, J Naveen, J Shiva and Ch Chennakesavulu – died when the police, in “an act of self-defence” opened fire at them after they wrested weapons and tried to open fire and flee at Chatanapalli in Shadnagar.
Initial information suggests that they were taken to the place to recreate the crime scene on Thursday night. They were shot dead by Telangana police personnel when they allegedly tried to escape from there. The four accused had been remanded to police custody by a Shadnagar court for seven days, only yesterday.
