Parents of the two of the accused who brutally raped and murdered 26-year-old Hyderabad veterinary doctor have demanded that they want their sons to be punished if found guilty.
On November 26, Telangana woke up to the horror of a young woman being brutally raped and burnt at Chatanpally village in the outskirts of Hyderabad.
Police have nabbed four accused who have confessed to the crime and have sent them to 14 days judicial custody.
Jayamma, mother of Chennakeshavulu, who is one of the accused in the gangrape and murder, told media, “If my son committed the crime, burn him too. My son is nothing to me. Wrong is wrong. She (victim’s mother) gave birth to a daughter after nine months. Her daughter becoming the victim of such a crime… what she must be going through.”
Jayamma said that Areef who is the prime accused had come to their house on November 24 to take Chennakeshavulu along with him. Her son was supposed to return on November 25 but didn’t.
She added that Chennakeshavulu hadn’t worked for the past six months as he had a kidney ailment and was getting treatment at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences in Hyderabad.
“We don’t believe that he committed the crime, but if he did indeed commit it then he should face the same punishment as the other accused,” she said.
Jayamma said that she too has a daughter and understands the pain of the grieving mother of the victim.
Similarly, Hussain, father of the prime accused Areef, said that his son should be given the punishment if he has committed such a crime.
All four of the accused hail from the Narayanpet district of Telangana. Among them, Areef comes from Jakkulare village and the others are from Gudigandla. These two villages are under Makthal Mandal.
Meanwhile, on November 30, residents of Makthal carried out large protests demanding justice for the victim.
