Hyderabad: In a shocking twist to a crime that horrified the nation, all four men accused in the gang-rape and murder of a young veterinarian in Telangana were killed when they were trying to escape during investigations at the same spot where the woman’s body was found, the police said this morning. The young woman’s rape and murder had triggered rage and horror across the nation after her body, badly burnt, was found last week near Hyderabad.
The four men – Mohammed (26), Jollu Shiva (20), Jollu Naveen (20) and Chintakunta Chennakeshavulu (20) – had been taken to the scene of the crime at 3 am for a reconstruction as part of investigations, the police said. They were at the spot where the charred body of the woman was found, around 60 km from Hyderabad, when, the police claim, one of the men signaled to the others, possibly to escape.
