‘She called her sister not cops’: Telangana Minister’s remark on Veterinarian murder

A day after the charred body of a 26-year-old veterinarian was found below a bridge in Shadnagar town near Hyderabad, a Telangana Minister comments kicked up a storm that the incident could have been prevented if the victim had called the police instead of her sister.

“We are saddened by the incident. It is unfortunate that she called her sister and not ‘100’. Had she called ‘100’, she could have been saved,” Telangana Home Minister Mohammad Mahmood Ali said.

The matter came to light on Thursday morning when the charred body of a woman was found. 

Investigations revealed that the victim stopped at a toll booth, parked her bike there and took a cab to go to Gachibowli to visit a dermatologist. When she returned to the toll booth at around 9 pm, she found her two-wheeler punctured.

The victim had gone missing on Wednesday night after she left from her workplace and was headed home.

According to the police, the veterinarian had called her sister between 9 pm – 9.30 pm that her vehicle was punctured, and somebody has offered to help her.

The veterinarian reportedly told her sister that she was feeling scared by some truck drivers standing nearby.
