More than a week after the brutal incident took place in Hyderabad, police shot dead all the four accused in an alleged encounter near Shadnagar town of Telangana's Ranga Reddy district in the wee hours of Friday.

The accused were gunned down when they allegedly tried to snatch weapons from the police and escape. Police sources said they acted in self defence. The accused were taken to the spot by the Cyberabad police for reconstruction of crime scene as part of the investigations.

The gruesome rape and murder had triggered nationwide rage with demands for immediate death penalty for the perpetrators. There have been protests all over the country. Many had demanded that the accused be hanged in public.

Speaking in the Parliament, some MPs even called for lynching of the perpetrators involved in the horrific crime.
