Infosys techie Swathi murder: Kin seek death penalty for killer; cops say accused mentally unstable

Chennai: Days after the Tamil Nadu police apprehended 22-year-old Ram Kumar as the main suspect in the sensational murder case of Infosys techie in the city, her family on Sunday broke their silence on the issue and asked the state government to award the strictest punishment to the killer. 

24-year-old Swathi, an employee at Infosys, was found dead with multiple injuries on her body at Chennai's Nungambakkam railway station at 6.30 am on Friday. According to reports, S Swathi was on her way to work at Mahindra City, about 60 km south of Chennai.

Her family members addressed a press conference today in the city where they thanked the Chennai police and the Tamil Nadu government for nabbing Swathi's killer and also demanded the strictest possible punishment for the killer. 

Swathi's parents urge the Tamil Nadu government to award death penalty to 22-year-old Ram Kumar, who brutally killed Swathi in a fit of rage after she repeatedly refuses her marriage proposal. 

A day earlier, the Chennai police disclosed that arrested Ram Kumar was mentally unstable and was pursuing the 24-year-old Infosys techie for quite some time. He was reportedly angered when Swathi rejected his advances and thereafter hacked her to death using a sickle (sharp metal object) on June 24 in a fit of rage. 

A report stated that one of her family members confirmed that Swathi had confided that she was being troubled by one of her friends who was constantly troubling her over marriage.
