Chennai: The Chennai Police on Thursday released a high-resolution image of a man suspected to be involved in the gruesome murder of an Infosys employee on June 24.
The image of the suspect was released a day after the case was transferred from Railway Police to the Chennai Police after Madras High Court’s intervention.
On Wednesday, the police had discovered that the killer was a young man who was following Swathi since May.
The Chennai Police released the image with the help of a Hyderabad-based digital forensic firm which helped the city force in obtaining the high-resolution pictures of the accused.
The release of suspect's image is being seen as a major development and the police is now confident of cracking the case soon.
The local investigators had been groping in the dark and so far failed to identify the accused because of poor quality of CCTV video.
The police is now seeking help from local residents in tracing the murderer.
Swathi was hacked to death on a platform in Nugambakkam railway station in Chennai at around 6:30 am on June 24.
