A bench comprising Chief Justice N.V. Ramana and Justices Surya Kant and Hima Kohli heard the case.

In the murder of the four accused in the Hyderabad case, three were known to be minors. The commission found some irregularities as well. The report calls for the trial for 10 officers in this case.

The commission has also pointed out glaring lapses in the investigation.

The committee pointed out that there is no evidence to prove the police version of accused snatched pistol and tried to escape.

The report in its finding says that there was a deliberate attempt to cause the death of the accused with the knowledge that the firing would invariably result in the death of the deceased suspect, the report said.

The report also mentions that at the time of death, three out of four deceased were minors, named Jolu Shiva, Jolu Naveen, and Chintakunta Chennakeshavulu.
