New Delhi: BJP leader Maneka Gandhi Friday slammed the police for the killing of four men accused in the Telangana gangrape-murder case and said it set a “horrifying” precedent for the country.
“Jo bhi hua hai bohot bhayanak hua hai is desh ke liye (What happened was horrifying for the country)… You cannot kill people because you want to. You cannot take law in your hands, they (accused) would have been hanged by court anyhow,” the former union women and child development minister told reporters in Parliament complex.
Worrisome that people have lost faith in justice system: Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said while the people of the country are rejoicing the encounter deaths of the four accused in the gangrape and murder case of the Hyderabad veterinarian, it is also worrisome that they have lost faith in the justice system.
“The rape cases that have come to light of late, people are in anger whether it is Unnao or Hyderabad, so people are expressing happiness over the encounter.
“It is also something to be worried about, the way people have lost their faith in the criminal justice system. Together all the governments will have to take action on how to strengthen criminal justice system,” he told reporters.
All the four accused in the rape-and-murder case of a 25-year-old woman Hyderabad veterinarian last month were killed in an exchange of fire with police on Friday morning.
