‘Quick justice’

A week back, the city witnessed the gruesome rape of a 27-year-old veterinarian who was later burnt to death. Her body which was found charred on the highway had angered many people. The police arrested all the four accused four days back.

In the wee hours of Friday, at 4 am, the police took them to the crime scene — to NH44 to recreate the crime. They were shot dead after an accused snatched a pistol from the police and tried to escape. Legal experts sought an immediate probe on the encounter as it sounds “fishy and mysterious”.

In the meanwhile, the nation is celebrating the encounter like it is a festival. While children are dancing at schools, crackers are being burst and petals are being showered on police. On social media too, the sentiment is pro-police as many of them hailed the act as ‘justice’.
