Harbhajan Singh- the fierce, daring and poised off spinner on field, the forthright, no-nonsense celebrity on social media. Renowned for his straightforward tweets, Harbhajan held no bars on congratulating Telangana police for serving justice to the four accused rapists of the Dr. Priyanka Reddy incident.
While the rape and brutal murder of the 26 year old veterinarian shocked the whole country last week, the four perpetrators were killed in an encounter by the Telangana police earlier today morning in Shamshabad.
As the nation congratulated the just deed done by Cyberabad Police Commissioner CV Sajjanar, Bhajji opened up on his official Twitter handle ‘Harbhajan Turbanator’, expressing his courtesy towards CMO Telangana and the Telangana Police.
Check out his Twitter post below, where he retweeted a clip of citizens hailing the police by ANI.
“Well done @TelanganaCMO and police for showing this is how it is done. no one should dare doing something like this again in future #makeitsafeindia” the 39 year old veteran wrote.
Along with Harbhajan, ex-Olympian and former head of Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports Col. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore also congratulated the police.
“I congratulate the hyderabad police and the leadership that allows the police to act like police Let all know this is the country where good will always prevail over evil (Disclaimer for holier than thou- police acted swiftly in self defence) #Encounter #hyderabadpolice” the 2004 Olympic silver medalist wrote on his official Twitter.
Indian badminton star Saina Nehwal expressed her appraisal of the event on Twitter.
“Great work #hyderabadpolice ..we salute u” the London Olympic bronze medallist tweeted.
However, badminton star Jwala Gutta expressed her concern on Twitter if the encounter will prevent future rapes from happening.
“Will this stop the future rapists?? And an important question Will every rapist be treated the same way…irrespective of their social standing?!” the 36 year old tweeted.
Last week, Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir took it to social media to express their condolences after the tragic news of the veterinarian’s rape and murder.
