People throw flower petals on the Indian policemen guarding the area where rape accused were shot on 6 December, 2019, in Shadnagar some 50 kilometers from Hyderabad.

A large number of people in Hyderabad, on Friday, 6 December 2019, expressed happiness over the encounter killing of the four accused arrested in the rape and murder of a woman veterinarian in the city.

A section of people reached the encounter site and congratulated the police and raised slogans in favour of them like “Telangana police zindabad” and “We got justice.” They said that this would act as a deterrent for people from committing such crimes.


Some women were seen distributing sweets to police personnel, while others tied rakhis.

Others celebrated the encounter by gathering at the site of the incident to applaud the police and shower flower petals on them.

"It has brought peace to soul of Poornima* and her family has got justice. The police have done an encounter, we are really happy. It will act as a deterrent. Those who want to do crime, they should fear... the police have done a very good job," a Hyderabad resident said.

Earlier, public anger over the rape and murder of the woman was evident last week, as a restive crowd pelted stones at a police vehicle carrying them to jail. Protests were also held by different student groups and others at various places in the state, demanding capital punishment for the accused. The charred body of the 25-year old woman veterinarian was found under a culvert at Shadnagar near Hyderabad on the morning of 28 November, a day after she went missing.
