Another body of burnt woman found in Telangana just close to the place veterinarian was killed


Hyderabad, Nov.29 (HS): A day after charred body of a 26-year-old veterinarian was found in a charred state at Shamshabad near Hyderabad, police today found another woman dead body under similar circumstances in the same locality. 

"The body was found in an open area on the outskirts of Shamshabad. It is being moved to a government hospital for autopsy, and a case is being registered," Commissioner of Police VC Sajjanagar said to media today. However, police said the second woman was found dead just a few kilometres away from where the veterinarian's body was recovered, but they could not confirm if the two incidents were linked. 

As the first incident had sent shock-waves across the nation, the second is eye opener to the Hyderabad government that was claiming for doing everything to catch the culprits. Police suspect that the victim was raped before being murdered. 

It worthwhile to mention here that the veterinarian had gone missing on Wednesday night, while she was heading home from work. Investigations revealed that on her way back, she stopped at the Shamshabad toll booth, parked her bike there and took a cab to visit a dermatologist. Upon returning around 9 pm, she found her two-wheeler punctured.

The veterinarian had last called her sister around 9:15 pm on Wednesday. An audio recording of the call seemed to suggest that somebody had offered to get her flat tyre fixed, and that she was feeling scared because some truck drivers near her were behaving in a suspicious manner.

They did not hear from her again. 

Telangana Director General of Police Mahendar Reddy called the murder "gruesome and atrocious", and promised to ensure that the culprits -- once caught -- are convicted expeditiously in a fast-track court.
