Cops can t act like lynch mob, attempt to distract people: rights activists on Hyderabad encounter

The police cannot act like a lynch mob under any circumstance, several rights activists said after four people accused in the rape and murder of a woman veterinarian were killed near Hyderabad in the early hours of Friday. The encounter is an attempt by authorities to distract people from the government s failures to safeguard women s rights, the activists said. According to Kavita Krishnan, secretary of the All India Progressive Women s Association, this is not justice but a ploy to shut down demands for accountability from the police, judiciary, governments, and justice and dignity for women. Instead of being accountable to his job and answering our questions about his government s failures to safeguard women s rights, the Telangana CM and his police have acted as leaders of a lynch mob, she said. She described the incident as the admittance of utter incompetence and failure of criminality on the part of the entire political and police system and accused Telangana Chief Minister
