One Raju, who is the accused in the much-talked-about Saidabad rape and murder case of a 6-year-old was found dead on a Railway track on the morning of Thursday. The dead body was shifted to Mahatma Gandhi Memorial (MGM) Hospital in Warangal for post mortem. Media reports say that the family members of the accused Raju had confirmed his identity, following which the post mortem was performed. After the post mortem formalities, the dead body was handed over to the family members.
The last rites of the accused were held at the GWMC graveyard in Warangal last night. The accused mother, wife, and a few others were present at the funeral. As his father died long back, Raju's mother Suguna performed the last rites.
Tension gripped the MGM Hospital when the accused dead body was taken to the facility to complete the facilities. People who gathered outside the hospital had attacked the ambulance by throwing chappals at the vehicle.
Doctors at the state-run hospital in Warangal said that they had detected wounds and grease lubricant on the body. The entire process was filmed. We are looking into the aspect to see if Raju consumed any drugs.
Reacting to the news the relatives of the victim said that the accused should have received a brutal death and they would have lynched him if he was handed over to them by the government.
However, the family of the accused says that Raju's death was not suicide but murder. They alleged that police told them that they are facing pressure from the higher officials to kill Raju. They had raised a few doubts on the circumstances of the death.
A few activists have expressed a few doubts on the death news and called for a judicial probe into the matter so that all the doubts over the death would be cleared.
For this, a few activists of various organisations have knocked on the doors of the Telangana High Court on Friday with Public interest litigation (PIL)on the issue. The petition was filed seeking directives for a detailed probe into the matter and the process should be monitored by the court.
