Commenting on the lengthy legal process he said, “We made a provision for capital punishment in such matters but no culprit has been hanged till date due to long legal procedures of lower courts, high courts, Supreme Court, and mercy petitions. Justice delayed is justice denied.”
Shiromani Akali Dal leader leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa said “On the behalf of every daughter and father of this country I want to thank Hyderabad police for their action in Hyderabad rape and murder case of the doctor. Such culprits should be handed over to people for quick justice. I would also request the courts not to grant bail in such crimes because it is not a bail, it is certificate for them to commit such a crime again.”
Rajyavardhan singh Rathore also reacted to the Encounter and said,
I congratulate the hyderabad police and the leadership that allows the police to act like police
Let all know this is the country where good will always prevail over evil
