The police said they took the four men on Thursday night to recreate the crime scene where the victim’s body was found burned. Meanwhile, one of them tried to escape from the spot. All four were killed “in the crossfire,” the police said.

The four suspects were Shiva, Naveen, Keshavulu and Mohammad Arif, who were handed over to police custody on Wednesday.

After the encounter, the victim’s father said that his daughter's soul must now be at peace.

The mother of Nirbhaya, 2012 gang-rape victim in Delhi, also expressed satisfaction about the encounter, saying “justice has been served”.

Activists and politicians condemned the police for what they said appeared to be extrajudicial killings. But the officers’ actions drew praise from many quarters and from the victim's family.
