Hyderabad: Four accused in the rape and murder of a woman doctor in Telangana's capital Hyderabad in 2019 were claimed to have been killed by the police in an encounter. But the panel constituted by the Supreme Court has called it fake. The panel submitted its report to the Supreme Court on Friday and termed the 2019 encounter as fake. It has also recommended a murder trial against 10 police officers involved in the encounter.
The panel said that it was claimed by the police that the accused in the rape and murder had snatched the pistol from them and tried to escape, but these have been found to be false.
The panel said the claims made by the police cannot be believed and the evidence found on the spot does not confirm it either. The report said the policemen had fired deliberately and knew that doing so could lead to the loss of lives. So this encounter is fake and the claims of the police appear to be false. In January this year, the Justice Sarpukar Commission submitted its investigation report in the case of this encounter to the top court. The report was given in a sealed envelope, which has now been revealed.
What's the whole matter?
In 2019, a 27-year-old veterinarian was kidnapped. After this, they were raped and killed and the body was thrown under a bridge. They were abducted from near a toll plaza. His body was burnt and attempts were made to erase the evidence. The accused Mohammed Arif, C. Chennakeshavulu, Jollu Siva and Jollu Naveen were arrested by the police in November 2019. After this, the incident of encounter of these people on December 6 came to light when the police took them to the crime scene to collect evidence.
