The Telangana police stunned the nation on Friday morning when they announced that all four men accused in the gang-rape and murder of a young veterinarian in Telangana were shot dead in the early hours. As per reports, the police claim that the accused were trying to escape when they were taken to the investigation spot where the woman's body was found. Telangana veterinarian Dr Priyanka Reddy was gang-raped and burnt to death so as to erase evidence by the four accused last week. 

Mohammed Arif (26), Jollu Shiva (20), Jollu Naveen (20) and Chintakunta Chennakeshavulu (20), were reportedly taken to the spot where Reddy's burnt body was found. According to NDTV, the police took the accused to the spot around 3 am as part of the investigation. As per the report, one of the accused could have possibly signaled others to escape with the police firing in self-defence. The woman's father told news agency ANI, "It has been 10 days to the day my daughter died. I express my gratitude towards the police and the government for this. My daughter's soul must be at peace now."
