Hyderabad encounter

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde was hearing two public interest litigations seeking an independent probe into the deaths last week.

While opposition leaders accused the Uttar Pradesh government of failing to provide security and justice to those brutalised by sexual violence in the state, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath gave the assurance that the case would be pleaded in a fast track court to provide speedy justice to the deceased woman's family.

Case under IPC sections 307 (attempt to murder), 176 (omission to give notice or information to public servant by person legally bound to give it) and relevant sections of the Indian Arms Act were registered against the accused.

Many people committed rapes and murders. But they were not killed like this. Why they were not meted out such treatment," Ramappa asked when media persons sought his reaction.

Far from the bustle of the city, this non-descript village with paddy and tomato fields came to life when the Telangana Police killed all four convicts in an 'encounter'.

This encounter, however , received lots of praise from people, but there were some who criticized the nature of the encounter. Where this took a form of celebration in many parts of country, people cracking fire-crackers,  distributing sweets, many people questioned the way encounter was done and how police could carry out such unlawful act.
