Post the encounter of all four accused from Priyanka Reddy Rape-Murder Case on Friday.

A day after all the four accused in the rape and murder case of Hyderabad veterinarian doctor in an encounter with the police, a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court (SC) seeking registration of FIR, investigation, and action against police personnel who were involved in the encounter, according to ANI. The advocate-general informed the court on Friday that the post-mortem was being conducted at the Government District Hospital in Mahaboobnagar, under the supervision of the hospital's superintendent and a forensic team from Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad. However, the process came to a halt following the High Court's intervention.

All the four accused were taken to hospital but succumbed to their injuries.

In the first such official admission of the kind, Yadav said that the credit for the encounter goes to Telangana's Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, adding the "reconstruction of the crime scene", during which the four accused were shot dead by the police, "wouldn't have happened without permission from above", The Indian Express reported.

The 26-year-old woman was allegedly raped by four men on November 26.

They allegedly then grabbed the weapons of the police team and opened fire. Mani and Yadav, in their separate PIL, said that no one would support the accused who are involved in gangrape and murder cases against innocent women. Reports had said the accused took her behind a line of trucks, raped, asphyxiated and then set her dead body alight on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Many famous celebs from the South film industry from the likes of superstars Allu Arjun to Jr.NTR along with other big names took to Twitter to hail and applaud the Telangana Police for serving justice.

Inspite of warning from the police to surrender, Sajjanar added that the accused refused and continued firing. He stated that the accused were brought to the site- based on the investigation and evidence collected by the police. While the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by advocate ML Sharma said that the SIT probe should be monitored by former apex court judges, a separate petition filed by lawyers GS Mani and Pradeep Kumar Yadav said that independent investigation against concerned police officials should be conducted.
