.Kudos to @TelanganaCMO and the @cyberabadpolice especially #VCSajjanar for delivering true justice swiftly and strongly! This sends a strong message to those monsters who break the law and hide behind the system. I am sure all such monsters are shaking with fear now! @cpcybd— Vivek Anand Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) December 6, 2019

Perversion of the justice system cannot be the answer to dealing with perverts in society. Fixing the justice system is. 🙏🏽— रanviर_ डhoरeय_ (Ranvir Shorey) (@RanvirShorey) December 6, 2019

Local investigators said that the group of four male suspects first punctured the rear wheel of the veterinarian's scooter. Then they offered her assistance in repairing the tire before dragging her to a secluded spot near a toll plaza and sexually assaulted her. She was later found burnt her to death on the night of 27 November.
