LUCKNOW: BSP president Mayawati on Friday praised the Hyderabad police for its strong action against the accused in the gang rape and murder of a 25-year-old veterinarian and asked the Uttar Pradesh Police to take inspiration from them.

"The action that has been taken by the Hyderabad police is praiseworthy," Mayawati said, reacting to the encounter killings of the four accused arrested in connection with the case.

"Uttar Pradesh and Delhi Police will have to change," she added.
