Activist K Sajaya files a petition seeking registration of FIR against the Telangana police for custodial death of 4 gang-rape suspects. Chief Justice of India, SA Bobde asked Advocate Vrinda Grover, who mentioned the matter, to approach the SC Registrar.
The CJI has agreed to hear the petition on an urgent basis on Wednesday, December 18, 2019. The petition talks about the illegality of the encounters being extra-judicial killings. However, the Cyberarbad Police maintained the story that they had resorted to retaliatory firing after two of the accused persons had snatched their guns and opened fire.
