Police arrest youth in Infosys employee murder case

Chennai, July 2 (IANS) Tamil Nadu police have arrested a youth in Tirunelveli district alleged to be the killer of female software engineer with Infosys S. Swathi.

“After getting information from the investigation team we picked up Ramkumar, 22, from his house on Friday night. On seeing us he tried to slit his throat with a blade. He was immediately taken to a hospital and is under treatment. He is fine and would recover,” a police official in Tirunelveli told IANS over phone.

According to the official, Ramkumar, an unemployed engineering graduate, has two sisters. His father works in BSNL and mother is a housewife.

“It seems the family is unaware of his alleged deed,” the official told IANS.

He said Rajkumar’s neighbours were reluctant to speak about the youth after coming to know the reason behind the police action.

“We have to check with the college authorities and others to know about him,” the police said.

Swathi was waiting at the Nungambakkam railway station to board a suburban train when an unidentified youth hacked her to death early in the morning on June 24.

With the images in the closed circuit television (CCTV) the police conducted its manhunt.

The attacker had also taken Swathi’s mobile phone after killing her. The police tracked the phone signals and found the phone was in Choolaimedu area near Nungambakkam station, said a news report.

The police was earlier told that a person resembling Ramkumar was staying in a mansion-building where bachelors stay. He vanished from the building since June 24.
