The brutal rape and murder of the 26-year-old veterinarian in Hyderabd have shaken the nation and everyone is brimming with opinion over the heinous crime.

She also questioned the security arrangements in the area and that a similar incident took place in Hyderabad just a day before the horrendous crime happened.

"The people want the government to give a proper and definite answer", said Bachchan.

On the accused, she said: "It may sound a little harsh, but these types of people [the rape accused] need to be brought out in public and lynched".

Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu rejected adjournment motions on the gang-rape and murder of a young woman veterinarian in Hyderabad but allowed members to make brief mentions on the same and other such incidents elsewhere in the country.

Azad said society will have to tackle the problem at its root, and called for stringent punishment of the guilty without any discrimination based on religion or caste. Four men allegedly deflated her scooter tyres to leave her stranded then approached her appearing to offer to help. They should be shamed, people who have not done their jobs properly.

She said the rapists should be "brought out in public and lynched".

Under Indian law, a rape victim can not be identified even after death, but on Friday the woman's name was the top Twitter trend in the country for several hours as tens of thousands of angry tweets demanded justice.

"This should be on an emergency basis", Yajnik said in the Upper House.

All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam MP Vijila Sathyananth broke down during the speech and said the accused must be hanged before December 31, according to Hindustan Times.

"The country is not safe for children and women".

She added that personnel in charge of the area where the crime occurred must be held accountable and made to answer for their failings.

Mohammad Ali Khan of the Congress wanted timelines be set for trial of accused in fast track courts and the accused not be given an religious colour.

"It has hurt everyone". "We are ready for discussions in the House so that stringent provisions in laws could be explored to give punishment to those involved in such ghastly incidents", he said, adding that heinous crimes were happening even after strict laws after the Nirbhaya incident. Besides, three policemen have been suspended for "dereliction of duty".

Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao directed officials on Sunday to ensure that the accused are tried in a fast track court after the Hyderabad vet's rape and murder led to massive protests in Telangana and an outpouring of rage across the country.

The Hyderabad police arrested four persons in connection with the crime, and a local court has sent them to 14 days' judicial custody.
