New Delhi The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear on December 18 a petition on the Telangana Police's encounter' in which four accused in gang-rape and murder case of a 25-year-old woman in Hyderabad.

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde said it will also examine what is being monitored by Telangana High Court.

The petition filed by two lawyers on Saturday have sought registration of FIR against policemen and an independent probe into the matter.

The four accused in the case were killed in an encounter on December 6.

Petitioners GS Mani and Pradeep Kumar Yadav sought directions for the registration of an FIR and then an investigation by the CBI, SIT, CID or team of police officers from other state to conduct the probe into the encounter.

The petition urged the apex court that the independent investigation agency must be directed in accordance with the guidelines laid down in connection with investigation (the PUCL vs State of Maharashtra) in fake encounter killing.

The petition alleged that it was a stage-managed encounter to shield the alleged lapses committed by police, which led to the commission of the gruesome offense of rape and murder.
