The bodies of the four suspects in the Shadnagar rape-murder case — Mohammed Arif, Jollu Shiva, Jollu Naveen and Chintakunta Chennakeshavulu — are being shifted by the police to Gandhi Hospital here from the Government District Hospital in Mahabubnagar on Monday.

One of the main reasons for shifting the bodies to Gandhi Hospital was the lack of facilities at the morgue to preserve bodies at the Government District Hospital in Mahabubnagar.

After conducting an inquest at the ‘encounter’ spot at Chattanpally on NH-44 in Shadnagar, the four bodies were shifted to the district hospital following instructions from the High Court. A seven-member team of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) had examined the bodies on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the NHRC team visited Care Hospital at Raidurgam to collect more information from Nandigama Sub-Inspector P. Venkateswarlu, 35, and constable Arvind Goud, 35, who had suffered injuries after the four suspects assaulted them during reconstruction of the crime scene at Chattanpally. The NHRC recorded the statements of Venkateswarlu and Goud.

The NHRC team, after examining the bodies and interacting with the families of the four suspects, on Monday focused on collecting information from the police about the rape and brutal murder and the circumstances that resulted in the killing of the four suspects. Sources said the team interacted with the investigating officer of the case and collected more information from him. The team, which flew down to Hyderabad on Saturday, will conclude its visit on Tuesday and depart to New Delhi.

The family of the victim, meanwhile, is contemplating submitting a letter to officials of the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in Shamshabad to allow her sister, who works with the Air Traffic Control at RGIA, to work only on day shift instead of night duty in the wake of the gruesome incident.
