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.
