They also raised slogans like "Jai Police and Jai Jai Sajjanar".

"We are proud of Sajjanar Sir. He has ensured justice. We want police official like you," a girl student said.

People performed 'Palabhishekam' (milk bath) to the portraits and flex boards of Sajjanar in the city and other parts of Telangana.

The milk bath is usually conducted to the portraits or cutouts of politicians and film stars on important occasions such as their birthdays or film release day.

Police said the accused, lorry workers aged between 20 and 26, were killed during an exchange of fire that took place between 5.45 am and 6.15 am when they were taken by a 10- member team to the scene of the crime at Chattanpalli, 50 km from here, for a reconstruction of events as part of the investigation.
