New Delhi: After managing to live anonymously for seven years, fugitive Amit Muddamalle Livingston was last week deported to the United States, where he is serving his 23-year sentence for murder.

Living under the false identity of 'Sanjay Kumar', Livingston worked as a medical transcriptionist with an outsourcing firm in Secunderabad, according to a report published in The Indian Express.

He was arrested after a team of Cyberabad Police and the US embassy followed him for a year after a tip-off to confirm his identity.

They even sent Livingston's picture to his firm's manager, who confirmed his identity .

Inspector Prathap Kumar of Kushaiguda police station said that Livingston even forged PAN card, ration card and obtained a driver's license, according to the report.

The 47-year-old medical billing specialist fled to Hyderabad after he was convicted of murdering 31-year-old Hermilia Garcia Harnandez, with whom he was in a relationship, in 2005.

Livingston reportedly shot dead Harnandez after the mother of three children told him that she wanted to end their relationship.

Her body was later recovered by the police from a beach in the South Padre Island.
