Amid nationwide protest over gang-rape and murder of veterinarian in Hyderabad, Samajwadi Party (SP) MP Jaya Bachchan on Monday called for strictest punishment for the committers of the heinous crime and suggested that the accused must be brought out in public and lynched.

“It is time, people want the government to give a definite answer,” Jaya said.

The charred remains of the 26-year-old veterinarian was found on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Thursday morning.
