Hyderabad (Rahnuma): A Twitter handle, which reportedly suggested to IT Minister KT Rama Rao the exact method to punish the rape suspects a few days ago, has mysteriously vanished.

The handle, @konafanclub, replied to a tweet of the Minister on how solace could be offered to the grieving family. The reply was thus: “Sir, if u want u can punish them. Take them for a crime scene reconstruction to the same spot where the victim was burnt, and I’m sure they will try to escape and I’m more sure that our police will have no option but to shoot them… please think once” (sic).

On Friday, this is exactly what happened at Chatanpally, according to the police. Interestingly, even after the ‘suggestion’ was realized indeed, the Twitter handle has now disappeared. A search on Twitter says the account does not exist anymore.

At the same time, another handle, @KonaFanClubNew, said the rumored tweet was fake (morphed).
