Hyderabad, Nov 29 (IANS) Telangana Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali on Friday said the accused involved in gangrape and murder of a young veterinarian will be tried in a fast-track court and the government will try to ensure that the guilty are awarded death penalty.
He told reporters this case will be tried like the case relating to rape and murder of a nine-month-old girl in Warangal.
Within two months of the gruesome incident in Warangal, a local court in August sentenced 27-year-old convict to death.

Cyberabad Police ACommissioner AV. C. Sajjanar, who formed 10 teams to investigate the case, is likely to announce the arrest of the accused later in the day.
