Hyderabad: The bodies of the four accused in the veterinarian rape and murder case were shifted to Gandhi Hospital from Mahabubnagar Government Medical College on Tuesday. This move comes after the Telangana high court ordered to preserve their bodies till December 13.

All the four accused in the rape and murder of a woman veterinarian were killed in an encounter with Telangana Police early on December 6.
 
On Monday (December 9), the high court had directed that the bodies will be transported to Gandhi Medical College and will be preserved there till December 13. The court also scheduled the matter for further hearing on December 12.
 
The case was adjourned as the Supreme Court will on December 11 hear a plea seeking action against police personnel involved in the encounter.

The petitioner has sought registration of an FIR, investigation and action against police personnel who were involved in the encounter.

A complaint was filed on Sunday against Cyberabad Police alleging that the four suspects in the rape and murder of the veterinarian were killed in a fake encounter at Shadnagar on December 6.

A case under IPC sections 307 (attempt to murder), 176 (omission to give notice or information to public servant by person legally bound to give it) and relevant sections of the Indian Arms Act were registered against Cyberabad Police.
