Thursday morning, allegedly by the accused.
“I appreciate the action of the Hyderabad police in which four accused of the rape and murder of the doctor were killed. If the same men had fled, one could imagine how insecure our sisters and daughters would have been. It will set a good precedent since the authors will realize that justice will be instantaneous, ”he added.
Affirming that people have lost faith in the justice system, he said: “I have seen people running from pillar to post for justice when I accompanied my daughter to court last year. Why does the legal process take so long? The police must set a deadline in such cases and file a charge sheet quickly.

It will act as a strong deterrent against heinous crimes such as rape and assaults on women, ”said a villager.
“I know that this was a serious and sensitive issue for the entire nation, and people have begun to debate. But I am very happy and satisfied with the police action in Hyderabad. Now, UP police should also be an example to deal with society's monsters like those who set fire to the rape survivor in a group, ”said the owner of a candy store.
A group of college girls also welcomed the development, saying it will serve as a lesson for those who attempt such crimes.
