Bhubaneswar,December 6 (LocalWire):While Telangana Police’s act of carrying out an encounter of the four accused in the rape and murder of a veterinarian in Hyderabad was received with cheer across the State, Odisha law minister today hailed the encounter killing describing it as a ‘justful act’ and sought for amendment of act to make punishment more stringent for rape offence.
