Hyderabad, April 7:
Police gunned down five terror accused as they tried to escape from their custody in Telangana’s Warangal district on Tuesday.
Police opened fire when the accused tried to escape while being brought to Hyderabad for a court hearing. The incident occurred between Aler and Jangaon, about 80 km from here.
Viqaruddin Ahmed and his four associates, involved in the killing of two policemen, were killed.
They were arrested in 2010 after a series of attacks on police in Hyderabad and were lodged in Warangal Central Jail.
The incident occurred close on the heels of a gunfight in Nalgonda district on Saturday in which two operatives of banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and a policeman were killed. (IANS)
