Just as other netizens, whose reactions have flooded Twitter since morning, Bollywood celebrities too took to the social media platform to express their views on the police encounter of four persons accused in the rape and murder case of a woman veterinarian.

Many of these Bollywood celebrities hailed the encounter, saying that justice has been 'served.' A few expressed displeasure over the incident.

While Dino Morea said that 'justice has been served,' Vivek Oberoi referred to the incident as a form of 'poetic justice.' 


Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor congratulated Telengana police for the deed. 

Nagarjuna Akkineni too said that 'justice has been served.'

Producer Bunty Walia called the encounter the 'best way' to deal with rapists.

Esha Gupta said the police did what the courts 'are unable to do.'

However, many disagreed with their counterparts in the film industry.

Ajay Brahmatmaj, a noted film critic, denounced this form of 'Gangajal' justice.

Swara Bhaskar, who had pinned a tweet that says to assume her dead if she is not part of a Twitter controversy once a week, did not say anything. Instead, she just retweeted. 

Ranvir Shorey called the encounter a 'perversion of the justice system.'
