The Indian sports fraternity praises the police for the murder of four rapes accused in Hyderabad
New Delhi, December 6 () The Indian sports fraternity on Friday praised the police for killing the four men accused of rape and murder of a veterinarian in Hyderabad.
The four defendants were killed in 'retaliation' shots by police near Hyderabad on Friday morning when they were taken to the crime scene as part of the investigation.
The ferries of the Olympic medalists P V Sindhu, Saina Nehwal and the cricketer Harbhajan Singh were among the leading athletes who praised the Telangana police for their action.
Great job #hyderabadpolice ... we greet you, Saina wrote on her Twitter account.
Justice has been done! @TelanganaPolice. May Disha's soul rest in peace, Sindhu tweeted.
The Phogat sisters, Babita and Geeta, also appreciated the action taken by the police.
I congratulate the police for the encouragement, women will feel more empowered now, the public is bathing them with petals for a reason. I greet you, Babita wrote.
Veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh and bronze medalist fighter from the London Olympics, Yogeshwar Dutt, also praised the police for the operation that killed the four men.
Well done @TelanganaCMO and the police for showing that this is how it is done, nobody should dare to do something like that again in the future, Harbhajan tweeted.
The former Sports Minister and bronze medalist at the 2004 Athens Olympics, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, also congratulated the Hyderabad police.
I congratulate the Hyderabad police and the leadership that allows the police to act as police. Let everyone know that this is the country where good will always prevail over evil (Disclaimer for being more sacred than the police acted quickly in self-defense) (sic), Rathore wrote.
However, the gold medalist of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Jwala Gutta, questioned the decision and asked if such police actions would prevent a violation from happening in the future.
Will this stop future rapists? And an important question: Will all rapists be treated in the same way ... regardless of their social position? Jwala wrote. The meeting took place when the suspects allegedly attempted to flee custody after being taken to the scene, for an investigation, where the body of a young veterinarian was found, raped and killed before catching fire, last week.
