The Hyderabad Police shot dead the four men after a brief encounter on Friday morning, drawing cheers from her family and public, who congratulated the police personnel for delivering ‘justice’ for the victim.

Meanwhile, a team from the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Saturday began an on-the-spot investigation into the police encounter in which four men accused in the gang-rape and murder of a woman veterinarian.
