New Delhi. The apex court of India has accepted to hear two Public Interest Litigations inquiring into the encounter killings of the 4 men accused of raping and killing a veterinary doctor in Hyderabad. The hearing is scheduled to begin on Wednesday. The petitions filed by Advocate G S Mani and Pradeep Kumar Yadav, termed it a fake encounter. While, the other petition filed by Advocate M L Sharma, has sought the formation of a special investigation team comprising retired Supreme Court judges to investigate, with the help of CBI, the encounter.


The bench headed by CJI Sharad Arvind Bobde also said, the court will examine what the Telangana High Court has to say in the case. The High Court, taking cognizance of a plea seeking judicial intervention in the matter, is scheduled to hear the petition today. The High Court had ordered that the bodies of all four accused be preserved until today. Recollecting the incident, the Telangana Police took all the four accused to Chattapally in an attempt to recreate the crime scene when they allegedly tried to escape after attacking the police, in the wee hours of Friday. 


The bodies of the 4 accused were found within a radius of 50 m. The State Government has also constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the “cause and circumstances” leading to the death of the four accused. The veterinarian went missing from Shamshabad toll plaza, near Hyderabad, on November 27. The four accused raped and then burnt her to death, the police have said. Her charred body was recovered the following day. The accused were arrested on November 29.
