In a statement on the gruesome rape and murder of Hyderabad based veterinary doctor, Telangana Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali on Friday said that the situation could have been avoided had the victim called the police instead of her sister the moment she sensed danger.
"We are saddened by the incident. Telangana Police are alert and efficient in controlling crime. It is unfortunate that despite being educated, she called up her sister and did not dial the police helpline number -- 100. Had she called up the police, she could have been saved," Home Minister Ali said.
Ali further added that in the near future the police would ramp up their efforts to spread awareness on the usage of police helplines to avoid any such situations.
"We will try to spread awareness about the use of '100' number. It is for the help of the public," said Ali.
"Just six months back, justice was ensured within two months in another case in which a minor girl was raped. In this case too, 10 teams have been formed. Some people have been picked up in connection with the crime. I believe the whole matter will be clear by evening," he said.
Meanwhile, the Hyderabad police gave arrested the four accused in the case and have said that a request would be made to handover the case to the fast track court.
On Thursday, the burnt body of the doctor was found at Shadnagar outskirts in Telangana's Ranga Reddy district.
As per the preliminary probe, the police suspect that the doctor was sexually assaulted. A case has been registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
