AGARTALA, Dec 2 (TIWN): Youths in Sonamura have paid tribute to victim Priyanka Reddy, held candle march seeking peace for her soul. Manir Hossain, Sonamura Yuba Brigade told media that such brutal incidents should not be repeated again in future and no woman should receive such a miserable ending.

At the same time, voice was raised to that no such incident should happen in future and no woman should meet her end like this.

The youths held a candle march to protest against the rape and murder of Hyderabad veterinarian Dr Priyanka Reddy. The youths offered condolences to the family and demanded that the culprits should be brought to justice.

The 26-year-old veterinarian was brutally gangraped and killed by four lorry workers before they burned her body on Wednesday night in Telangana's Shamshabad. All the four accused were nabbed from their houses on Friday by Cyberabad police.
