Hyderabad police arrested four persons in connection with the alleged rape and murder of a 26-year-old veterinary doctor.
Those include a truck driver and a cleaner. Reportedly, the accused saw Priyanka parking her vehicle at the toll plaza and plotted her abduction, assuming she would return to pick her vehicle.
Reportedly, they punctured her scoot tire and played an act of pretending to help her before abducting her. They took her to the secluded place near the Tondupally toll gate, raped between the parked trucks and killed her. Police are yet to ascertain if Priyanka bludgeoned or strangulated to death.
Owner of a tire repair shop told police that youth brought a scooty between 9.30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Priyanka had called sister Bhavya Reddy around 9.45 p.m. that her vehicle got punctured and somebody offered to help her and took her vehicle for repair. Bhavya said her sister told her that she was feeling scared by some truck drivers near her.
The police on Thursday morning found a charred body near Shadnagar. It was identified as Priyanka Reddy's body.
