It has been 20 days since the chilling rape and murder of Hyderabadi vet Disha shook the nation, and the case is taking an interesting turn with each passing day. A news regarding the accused that popped up on Tuesday is now creating sensation not only in the Telugu states but also in neighbouring Karnataka. Trusted sources from the Telangana police who have been investigating Disha’s case revealed that two of the accused confessed to committing nine other similar crimes. According to the information, the four accused Mohammed Arif, and Chintakunta Chennakesavulu, Jollu Shiva, and Jollu Naveen revealed shocking facts when they were under police custody. Among the four, Mohammed Arif and Chintakunta Chennakesavulu were said to admit that they sexually assaulted many women on highways and that they had committed nine other similar crimes prior to Disha’s.
Cyberabad police deployed a special team which is now camping at places around Telangana-Karnataka border to gather the clues with the information given from the two accused. “Though they confessed their hand in nine cases, we are suspected them to be involved in 15 cases which were registered in the same pattern by highways,” said one of the officials. The police now claim to collect the DNA reports of the 15 victims to match them with the four accused. The four were later shot dead on the outskirts of Hyderabad in the alleged police encounter.
