Indian police shot dead four men on Friday who were suspected of raping and killing a 27-year-old veterinarian in the city of Hyderabad, a police official told Reuters, drawing applause from her family and citizens outraged over crimes against women.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media, the men had been in police custody and were shot dead near the scene of last week’s crime where they tried to snatch the weapons of accompanying policemen, said N. Prakash Reddy, a deputy commissioner of police in Shamshabad, near Hyderabad.
Reddy said that the four men - two truck drivers and two truck cleaners, aged between 20 and 26 years - had been taken to the spot to re-construct the crime around 6 a.m. (0030 GMT)
“And there was a cross-fire. In this, all the four accused have died,” Reddy said. “Two policemen have been injured.”
No details were immediately available about how many police had escorted the four accused and whether they were handcuffed or roped together as is usually the case.
