Auto driver in Hyderabad kills wife, fakes it as Covid death | Sidnaz Blog


HYDERABAD: Close on the heels of the sensational murder of a software engineer in Tirupati and a bid to pass it off as a Covid-19 fatality, a similar case came to light on Saturday with Rachakonda police arresting an auto driver for allegedly killing his wife and burying her body, claiming she succumbed to the infection.
On June 24, Vanasthalipuram police received a complaint from one Dhanavath Bujji claiming that her 21-year-old daughter Ramavath Kavitha’s death on June 18 might not be natural.
Kavitha’s husband Ramavath Vijay informed her parents that she died of Covid-19. However, the family members grew suspicious when Vijay asked them not to touch his wife’s body. Despite that, her mother and a few other relatives wailed over her body.
“The persons who touched Kavitha’s body did not get the infection, leading to suspicion. Her mother lodged a complaint,’’ Rachakonda police commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat said.
Police said Kavitha’s body was exhumed and a post-mortem examination was performed. Meanwhile, police, during the investigation, came to know that the victim had tested negative for Covid-19 a week before she was murdered.
On intense grilling, Vijay reportedly spilled the beans that Kavitha did not die of Covid-19, but he smothered her to death. “He smothered her to death with a pillow while she was asleep. Later, he shifted the body into his auto rickshaw, took it to his native place Nalgonda and completed the final rites burying it. He informed her family members that she died of coronavirus,” police said.
When questioned about the motive behind the murder, Vijay reportedly said he suspected her character and killed her. He was arrested on Saturday and produced before a magistrate.
In June, a 27-year-old software professional’s charred body was discovered in a remote place in Tirupati. Later, police arrested her husband for murder. He even tried to fool her relatives and neighbours by saying his wife had died of coronavirus and hospital authorities had cremated the body.

HYDERABAD: Rachakonda police arrested a fraudster who lodged a burglary complaint along with the five men who committed the offence and seized Rs 17.7 crore worth counterfeit currency from their possession.
Police also seized Rs 6.3 lakh cash from the accused.

On June 15, B Murali Krishna Sharma, 35, a businessman cum astrologer from Bandlaguda, lodged a complaint with LB Nagar police stating that unknown persons broke into his house and stole two trolley bags containing gem stones.

During the investigation, police analyzed the CCTV camera footage near the crime scene and identified one of the suspects as V Pawan Kumar, 28, former employee of Murali. Police apprehended Pawan and based on his confession, arrested the remaining accused — D Rama Krishna, 24, a driver, N Suresh Gopi, 25, a businessman, Ch Vijay Kumar, 27, a priest, K Suryam, 25, an auto driver and Ch Nagendra Prasad, 32, a private employee, from Piduguralla in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh at Nagole.
The accused confessed that they committed the burglary thinking that huge amount of cash will be in the trolley bags but they found counterfeit currency notes of Rs 2,000 denomination.
Among the accused, Nagendra Prasad is a relative of Murali and based on Prasad’s recommendation, Murali—who runs gem stones sale business—employed Pawan.
Pawan thought of stealing the cash and Prasad also agreed for it. The duo roped in other accused from their native place in Piduguralla to execute the burglary plan.
After crossing Choutuppal, the accused opened the bags hoping to find gems and diamonds. Instead, they found bundles of counterfeit currency notes of Rs 2,000 denomination along with 16 notes of genuine currency in same denomination.
The accused set ablaze the counterfeit currency at Nerketpally and fled. Based on their statement, police arrested Murali and seized Rs 17.7 crore counterfeit currency notes of Rs 2,000 denomination and Rs 6.3 lakh cash from his possession on Wednesday.

Telangana: Student’s claim of kidnap, rape false | Hyderabad | Hyderabad News


HYDERABAD: A 19-year-old student’s alleged claim of kidnap and gang-rape at Ghatkesar turned out to be a concocted story to stay away from her family.
In a rare gesture, Rachakonda police commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat on Saturday apologised to all suspects, who were questioned for three days, as they had to face the ordeal and humiliation. Rachakonda police, who had registered a gang-rape case based on the statement of the 19-year-old undergraduate in Ghatkesar, have found during investigation that “it is a false complaint made by the teenager”.

Police said they were yet to take a decision on filing any case against the teenager for giving a false complaint and sending over a hundred police personnel on a wild goose chase. Addressing a press conference on Saturday, Rachakonda police chief Mahesh Bhagwat said the girl allegedly created the abduction-cum-gang-rape drama as she wanted to stay away from her family.
On February 10 late in the evening, the girl called her mother claiming she was abducted by an auto driver. After police were informed about the abduction by her family, the girl was found with a leg injury and torn clothes. During the investigation, it was found she had suffered injury after she fell down accidentally while running after police vans with blaring sirens came in search of her. She herself tore her dress to project that she was sexually abused.
After she was shifted to a private hospital, the teenager gave a preliminary statement, but police found several inconsistencies in her replies.
Assuming that the inconsistent replies could be due to the trauma, police shifted their focus on nabbing the accused. “When police interacted with her and showed some photographs, she identified an auto driver as one of the suspects. Believing her version, we nabbed him. However, when we verified the facts, the suspect was not at the said locations on Wednesday as claimed by the girl. Actually, he was in a movie theatre and later went to consume liquor with his friend. The same was corroborated by CCTV footage,’’ the CP said.
Similarly, when police verified 100 CCTVs from Rampally Crossroads to Annojiguda service road, where she was traced by police, she was actually found at different locations either boarding or disembarking an auto rickshaw, taking a long walk for nearly four kilometres.
“Nowhere, we found anyone abducting her. It became clear that she was lying. On Friday night, we questioned her again by showing the different footage, it was then that she confessed that she cooked up the kidnap and rape story,’’ police said.
When investigators questioned why she tried to fix an innocent auto driver, the teenager said that in the past he had yelled at her after a dispute over auto fare. Rachakonda police said they have to close the existing case and inform the court.
