Hyderabad: A woman was found murdered at her house in Rajendranagar here on Thursday. According to the police, Jyothi (33), a native of Bidar, was staying at Ram Bagh in Rajendranagar for the last two years along with her two daughters. Her husband lived separately in Bidar.
Jyothi’s family members told the police that her elder daughter was studying at a residential school and lived there while the younger daughter lived with her. On Tuesday, the younger daughter returned from school and noticed the door of the house locked. Assuming that her mother had gone out, she went to a relative’s house nearby. She returned later in the evening and found the door still locked. The relatives too thought that the woman had gone somewhere.
However, on Thursday afternoon, the neighbours grew suspicious when foul smell started emanating from the house. On being informed, the Rajendranagar police came to the spot and broke open the door. “The body of the woman was found with injuries. After killing the woman, the assailant locked the house from outside and left. We suspect a neighbour who was friendly with the woman might have killed her. However, we are probing from all angles,” said Ashok Chakravarthy, ACP, Rajendranagar.
The police registered a case under Section 302 of IPC and took up investigation.
