Two SIMI activists, who had escaped from Khandwa jail in MP in 2013 along with four other activists, died on Saturday morning in an encounter in Telangana. However, Telangana home minister says the killed assailants are interstate gang members and the govt will wipe them out.

The police gunned down two armed assailants two days after they had killed two policemen at Suryapet in Nalgonda. One more policeman lost life on Saturday in the exchange of fire.

Two cops had sustained injuries in the gun battle that started around 7 am at Janakipuram near Mothkuru mandal of Nalgonda district after a dramatic chase. The injured were rushed to Hyderabad. Sub-Inspector Siddaiah is in serious condition while constable Nagaraju succumbed to bullet wounds.

Police sources said that the two armed assailants who were shot dead raised slogans and were trying to escape. Despite calls to surrender, the accused opened fire on policemen, resulting in exchange of fire. The gun battle continued for 30 minutes. Finally, the criminals were shot dead.

Police sources said that police recovered Vijayawada bus ticket from them and also some documents which proved that they were SIMI members. On further investigations it was also revealed about their SIMI connections.

The Telangana police was put on high alert after a constable and a home guard were shot dead at Suryapet bus-stand around Wednesday midnight. The Suryapet Inspector and a constable were critically injured in the firing.

The killers had taken away the Carbine of one of the slain policemen. Police launched one of the biggest manhunts of recent times in the state.

While they had no clue about movements of the killers on Friday, the special police parties on the look-out for the duo learnt that the accused took away the bike from a villager at gunpoint at Janakipuram around 5 am.
