Telangana govt forms fast-track court to try rapists-killers

The Telangana government has completed all the arrangements for the fast-track court that will hear the 'Disha' case exclusively 10 AM-5:30 PM daily

A court on Wednesday agreed to seven-day police custody of the four accused in the case of rape and murder of a veterinary doctor near Hyderabad last week. Police today assured the court that a charge sheet will be filed in this case after completing the questioning of the accused in seven days. Meanwhile, the Telangana government constituted a fast track court to expedite the trial of the accused.

In the hearing at the Shadnagar court (49.1 km from Hyderabad) on Wednesday, Cyberabad Police sought a 10-day remand. Police told the court it was necessary to take the four accused in their custody for questioning and collecting evidence in the rape and murder case. But the court approved of no more than seven-day police custody.

The hearing in the court was to begin on Tuesday, but the absence of a magistrate delayed the process.

Meanwhile, after the permission of the Telangana High Court, the State government has set up a fast track court for the trial at the additional session court building in the Mahboobnagar district. The law department of the State government issued a notification in this regard on Wednesday, which says that the fast-track court will work in the building of the additional sessions court in Mahboobnagar. A district judge has been appointed for this court. The special public prosecutor has been appointed, too.

The fast-track court will hear the case daily from 10 AM to 5:30 PM. The court will hear the Hyderabad case of rape and murder of the veterinary doctor alone.

Earlier, Santosh Reddy, secretary (legal affairs) of the Telangana government, had written a letter to the high court, urging it to set up a fast-track court for an immediate hearing of the case. The high court approved of the fast track court.

The 27-year-old veterinary doctor was gang-raped by four criminals in the night of 27 November and then murdered. After killing the victim, the accused burnt her body with petrol to hide her identity. The nation woke up to the horror story in the morning of 28 November when the doctor’s body was found.
