The father of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape victim 'Nirbhaya' on Friday backed the Telangana police for killing all the four accused in the gang rape and murder of a veterinarian in an alleged encounter. 

"I feel they have done a very nice job. If they had escaped, there would have been questions about how the police let them escape. Also, it would have been difficult to arrest them again. Even if it (their arrest) would have happened, the whole procedure of punishing them would take unfathomable time," he said.

"The family of the Hyderabad doctor will not have to wait for justice for seven years like us. Police did the right thing," he said.

"I am extremely happy with this punishment. Police has done a great job & I demand that no action should be taken against the police personnel" she said. 

All four accused in the gang-rape and murder case of a 26-year-old female veterinarian in Telangana were killed in an encounter with police on Friday morning, the Cyberabad police said.
