Techies in Hyderabad seek death for vet’s rapist-murderers


Hyderabad, Dec 3 | Techies working for various companies here staged a protest on Tuesday, demanding death for the four accused in the horrific gang-rape and murder of a woman veterinarian on the outskirts of the city last week.

The software employees of various Information Technology companies in the IT cluster of Hitec City took out a protest march near Mindspace IT Park. They were carrying placards with slogans like ‘We want justice’ and ‘Hang the rapists’.

The protestors demanded that the four truck drivers and cleaners arrested for the gruesome crime should be immediately awarded capital punishment.

Participants in the protest voiced concern over the growing number of crimes against women across the country. “Hyderabad used to be a safe city but it is no longer safe. We are now scared to venture out,” said a woman protestor.

Another protestor said the guilty should be burnt alive. “They should be made to go through what the lady went through at their hands,” she said.

The protestors also demanded amendments in the existing laws to provide protection to women.

Protests, demanding stringent punishment for the accused, continued across Telangana for a fourth consecutive day on Tuesday.

Women, students, and lawyers participated in the protests. Women’s wing of Congress party organized massive protest in Patanchru. Party leaders alleged that unrestricted sale of liquor is also leading to increasing crimes against women.

Lawyers participated in a candle-light march in Nampally Court complex. They demanded amendments to laws to check crimes against women.

Students of various colleges and students took part in protests in Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana, demanding immediate death penalty for the rapists and killers of Disha, the name given by police to the victim of the gruesome crime.

The 25-year-old veterinarian was gang-raped and murdered by four truck drivers and cleaners near a toll gate on Outer Ring Road at Shamshabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad on November 27.

According to police, they trapped the victim by deflating one of the tyres of her scooty when she had reached the toll gate around 9 p.m. to pick up her vehicle which she had parked earlier before boarding a cab to visit a dermatologist in the city.

After killing the victim, they carried the body in their truck near Shadnagar town and set it ablaze.
