All the four accused in the rape and murder case in Telangana last week that sparked countrywide outrage, were killed in an encounter with the Cyberabad police early Friday, police said.

The four accused – Mohammad Ali alias Mohammad Arif, Jollu Shiva, Jollu Naveen Kumar and Chintakunta Chenna Keshavulu – had been taken to Chattanpalli by a police team to reconstruct the scene of crime where they allegedly attacked the cops and tried to run away from the spot.

“They did not stop even when asked to surrender. As a last resort, the police had to fire at them, killing them on the spot,” the official said on condition of anonymity.

The four were arrested on November 29 within 36 hours of the crime.
