Hyderabad: The murder and rape of a 26-year-old veterinarian in Hyderabad on Thursday has yet again highlighted the issue of women’s safety in the country. The doctor was on her way home when she was gang raped and murdered and her charred body was found the following day.
The police have arrested the four accused, who were produced in court on Friday and they have been remanded to judicial custody. The incident has led to protests being held for women’s safety and leaders issuing statements on this regard.

We as a society have failed to protect our daughters B. #Roja and #Priyankareddy.— Prakash Ambedkar (@Prksh_Ambedkar) November 30, 2019
The culprits have no place in this civilized society and they must be tried in fast track court for speedy justice.
We demand #JusticeForRoja and #JusticeForPriyankaReddy #à¤ªà¥ÂÂà¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¤ÂÂà¤ÂÂà¤¾_à¤°à¥ÂÂà¤¡à¥ÂÂà¤¡à¥ÂÂ
For how long the onus of women's safety will be on women themselves? What about raising men who are respectful, whose needs are not prioritised over those of women, who are sensitive and empathetic? There must be a reboot.#Priyanka_Reddy— Ruchira Chaturvedi (@RuchiraC) November 30, 2019
Look at the mindset of #Telangana police.They told the father that she might have eloped with someone. @DgpTelangana @TelanganaCMO I expect serious, sever and quick action against the officials who didn't act on the missing complaint. #HyderabadHorrer— Rekha Sharma (@sharmarekha) November 29, 2019
Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan will later today meet the family members of the doctor who was raped and murdered in Ranga Reddy district in Telangana. Meanwhile, a team of the National Women Commission (NCW) visited the family at their residence earlier today.
