Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court on Monday ordered the state administration to preserve till December 13 the bodies of the four accused of the rape and murder of a woman veterinarian, who were gunned down by the police last week. The matter has been posted for hearing on December 12. The high court directed that the bodies will be transported to Gandhi Medical College and will be preserved there till December 13.

The case was adjourned as the Supreme Court will on December 11 hear a plea seeking action against police personnel involved in the encounter of four accused in the rape and murder of the woman veterinarian in Telangana. The petitioner has sought registration of an FIR, investigation and action against police personnel who were involved in the encounter.

The accused -- Mohammed Arif, Naveen, Shiva, and Chennakeshavulu -- were killed in the police encounter at Chatanpally, Shadnagar on the morning of December 6. On Sunday, a complaint was filed against Cyberabad Police alleging that the four suspects were killed in a fake encounter. The Telangana government has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the police encounter against the four accused.

The veterinarian was gang-raped and killed by the accused before they burnt her body in Telangana's Shamshabad on November 27. Her charred body was recovered on November 28.
