Police in southern India captured four men blamed for assaulting a lady and covering her before setting her ablaze this week.
The 27-year-elderly person passed on Wednesday, however accounts contrast on whether the covering or fire killed her.
“Four individuals have been captured and they have admitted to rape with the person in question. Because of the rape and the power, she became semi-cognizant,” R. Venkatesh, police reviewer from Hyderabad, told CNN.
“They put her body in a lorry and took her to an alternate area where they put her body under the extension and poured diesel fuel and oil on her body and consumed her.”
Police told the Times of India the lady passed on from suffocation.
Cyderabad Police Commissioner VC Sajjanar said two truck drivers and their two associates assaulted the lady, a veterinarian, on the guise of helping her with a punctured tire on her school. One man supposedly removed the bike while the three other hauled the lady to a vacant part where every one of the four assaulted her.
Police said one of the men covered the lady to stop her shouts. The men at that point drove her body to an expressway underpass where they set her ablaze.
Authorities said they distinguished the four suspects – Mohammed Areef, C Chennakeshavulu, J Shiva and J Naveen – utilizing CCTV film. Every one of the four purportedly admitted to the wrongdoing. They were expected in court Saturday.
