According to sources in the early hours of friday, the nation woke up to the news that the four men who were accused in the rape and murder of a 26 year old veterinarian from hyderabad had been killed in an alleged encounter by hyderabad police. Meanwhile as debates about whether the police’s actions were justified heated up on social media, the parents of the deceased accused have reacted to the news of the death of their sons.
When speaking to the media, the prime accused Areef’s mother is visibly distraught. “I don't know what they've done. My son is gone! Of course, this is wrong. My son is gone. I am not able to speak,” she said between sobs. Furthermore the mother of another accused shiva was visibly shaken up as she spoke to the media. She cried saying “Sir, if my son was found to be guilty, then please shoot him". Perhaps Shiva’s father on the other hand questioned why only the four accused in this particular case were given such punishments. “Others should also be punished in this manner, why haven’t they been?” Apparently not all the parents of the accused hold the same views. father of accused naveen said “We told earlier itself to kill them instead of putting them in jail, but they should’ve at least given us a chance to see them before killing them".
Previously Jayamma the mother of the fourth accused, Chennakesavulu had stated to the media that her son should be punished if found guilty. She had earlier said “If my son committed the crime, burn him too. My son is nothing to me. Wrong is wrong. She (victim’s mother) gave birth to a daughter after nine months. Her daughter becoming the victim of such a crime what she must be going through".
