"Justice Has Been Served," Priyanka's Parents Gets Emotional

  • 08 Dec 2019

The four suspects allegedly involved in the gang rape cum murder of Indian veterinarian Dr Priyanka Reddy in Hyderabad, India, have been shot dead by the police. 

According to the BBC, the four men were gunned down in the wee hours of Friday (Dec 6), after they tried to disarm and escape while being taken to the crime scene to reconstruct the crime.

Hyderabad police commissioner VC Sajjanar told BBC Telugu that two police officers were also injured in the incident. 

Priyanka, 27, was believed kidnapped, gang raped and burnt to death by the four suspects while she was returning home from work on Nov 26. 

Police said the suspects deliberately punctured the victims's scooter tyre, before abducting her on the pretext of helping her fix the tyre. 

'Justice has been done'

The victim's mother has welcomed the suspects' killing, saying "justice has been done", reported BBC. 

"I can't put it into words. I felt happiness but also grief because my daughter will never come home.

"My daughter's soul is at peace now. Justice has been done. I never thought we would get justice. No other girl should experience what my daughter did," she was reported saying.

Thousands of people, who had earlier accused the police of slow reaction to the victim's killing, reportedly celebrated the suspects' shooting by setting off firecrackers and distributing sweets in the neighbourhood. 

Netizens similarly celebrated the slaying, saying justice has been delivered to the victim, and hailed the police. 

Of late, sexual violence against women in India has been making headlines. 

According to Indian government statistics, 33,658 women were raped in the country in 2017 - averaging a whopping 92 rapes a day!
