Hyderabad: The police on Wednesday arrested Sai Kiran on the charge of killing his lover, a 17-year-old girl, by pushing her off a hillock on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Interestingly, the accused subsequently visited the girl's parents to 'console' them.
The 17-year-old girl, a resident of Miyapur, was missing since Saturday and the police had registered a case of kidnap. On examining CCTV footage, the police found the girl and the youth getting off an autorickshaw and walking towards an undergrowth. He reportedly assaulted her following an argument and pushed her off the hillock, causing her death. Residents alerted the police on finding a putrefied body near Ameenpur at Madinaguda on Tuesday.
The police said Sai Kiran and the girl were in an affair in the past two years and he was trying to be evasive of late. The girl pressurized him to stay put and the accused wanted to get rid of her, the police said.
The victim's father, Kishore Jain, a businessman, said there could be more people behind the murder. The girl had left the house on Saturday to meet friends. Her parents approached the police when she failed to turn up after a while.
