Two days ago, three young men, Srinivas Rao, Harikrishna and Sanjay, threw acid on two engineering students Swapnika and Praneetha. The victims are hospitalized with severe burns.
Police have been searching for the three attackers who are said to be not at their residences. Late in the night, the police traced them near a forest where the three attackers went to retrieve a motor cycle.
According to the police, the three youth attacked the police with weapons and the police resorted to firing in self defence, which resulted in the death of Srinivas Rao, Harikrishna and Sanjay.
