All four accused of the gruesome gangrape and murder of veterinarian in Hyderabad were sent to judicial custody for 14 days on Saturday.

Mandal Executive Magistrate passed the orders at Shadnagar police station for the judicial custody. The accused could not be produced in a fast-track court in Mahabubnagar due to the non-availability of the judge as well as the tense situation outside the police station where the accused were kept.

As per the reports, the accused Mohammed Arif, Chintakunta Chennakeshavulu, Jollu Shiva and Jollu Naveen are likely to be shifted to Mahabubnagar jail.

Earlier, as a precautionary measure, three doctors of a government hospital were also brought to the police station as the protestors were becoming violent.

Later, police had to lathi-charge to disperse the protestors from outside the police station.

Angry locals squatted in front of the police station since morning in the town raising slogans of ‘we want justice’. They were demanding the immediate hanging of the accused. While some of the protesters were demanding the accused to be encountered by the police.
