In an alarming incident that surfaced from Mangalagiri, Jyothi in her late 20s was found murdered on Monday. According to police, two unidentified men allegedly attacked the woman and her boyfriend at an isolated place near the international cricket stadium in Mangalagiri limits.
According to police, 27-year-old Angadi Jyothi and 29-year-old Chinchi Srinivas belonged to Tadepalli’s Mahanadu. Police sources said that both of them were in the vicinity of the international stadium to spend some time on Monday evening when they were attacked.
The reasons behind the attack are yet to be ascertained by investigation authorities. The assailants attacked the couple with metal objects. While Jyothi died on the spot, Srinivas sustained injuries on the head and is undergoing treatment at NRI Medical College.
Managalagiri Rural Inspector P Balaji said, “The victim Srinivas in his statement claimed that two unidentified men attacked them while they were spending some private time.”
While Jyothi’s boyfriend claims that they were attacked by unidentified assailants, the family members of Jyothy are alleging that Srinivas has a role in it.
The inspector said the girl’s brother Angadi Prabhakar believes that Srinivas had a hand in the murder. The police also found that Srinivas had made few phone calls to his friends before the rape and suspect that his friends might have hit him to avoid any suspicions.
A case has been registered under IPC 302 (punishment for murder) and 307 (punishment for the attempt to commit murder).
While the post-mortem has been completed, police are waiting for the report to proceed further with the investigation.
