Hyderabad: A 20-year-old female engineering student was murdered allegedly by her senior at his residence in Vanasthalipuram here, police said on Monday.

The incident took place last night when assailant Shekhar delivered multiple blows smashing the victim's head with a baseball bat in his flat at Hill Colony, Vanasthalipuram Police Inspector Ravinder Reddy said.

After killing the girl, identified as Divya, the accused sent messages to his friends about the incident, stating that he was going to end his life, police said.

He also sent an SMS to another youth, with whom Divya was apparently involved, telling him that he had killed his lover.

Divya was a fourth-year student of computer science at Vignan Engineering College located on the outskirts. She hailed from Narsaraopet in Guntur district while the accused is a native of Choutuppal in Nalgonda district.

Sekhar, who completed his B.Tech last year, was a year senior to Divya. He called her to his flat yesterday stating that he wanted to talk to her and sort out differences, police said quoting friends of Divya who got the SMS.

One of Divya's friends who received the SMS from Shekhar informed the police, Reddy said.

The victim's body was found in a pool of blood with multiple head injuries.

Police suspect that a strained relation between Divya and Sekhar might be the reason behind the murder.

The accused is at large and we have formed a team to nab him, police said.
