Andhra Pradesh Shocker: Woman techie killed in Guntur


Guntur, March 24: A 26-year-old woman software engineer was found murdered in Andhra Pradesh's Guntur on Sunday, March 23 two days after she had married a man from another community against her parents' wishes.

P Deepthi, who was working at an IT firm in Hyderabad since 2010, was in love with her colleague Kiran Kumar. However, her parents - P Hari Babu and Samrajyam - were against the affair, a senior police officer said.

But the two went ahead and got married on March 21 at the Arya Samaj temple.

"Her parents took them to their native place in Guntur, telling the newly-wed couple that they had accepted the marriage and the couple only needed to perform some rituals," the officer said.

At Guntur, the parents took the girl away while Kiran Kumar and his friends were asked to stay at a lodge.

"Kiran Kumar tried to call his wife on her cellphone this morning, and as there was no response, he alerted police who broke open the door of the house to find the woman lying dead on the bed. She had been strangulated with her chunri," said the officer.

Police have formed special teams to nab the parents who are on the run.
