An employee of Infosys, B. Neelima, 27, leapt to death from the multi-storied parking complex on the company’s campus at Nanakramguda in Raidurg, the police said on Wednesday.
She was working with the company’s office at New Jersey in United States for over a year and flew to India 10 days ago on leave for four weeks. Video footage of the secret cameras on the campus showed her walking towards the parking complex around 8.45 p.m. on Tuesday, the Inspector, A. Balakoti, said.
She went up the seventh floor in lift. “She had no specific work in the office but entered the campus by swiping her employee card,” he said. Around 10.30 p.m., the security guards heard a huge noise and found the woman lying on the ground floor with multiple fractures.
She was rushed to hospital where doctors pronounced her dead. A mobile phone and a paper slip with the phone numbers of her husband, Suresh, and mother, Eruva Rani, were found in the handbag she carried.
The techie from Kothapalli of Vardhannapet in Warangal district got married to Suresh of Kodad in Nalgonda district nearly three years ago.
She joined Infosys two years ago and was sent to U.S. to work on a project in March, 2011. Ms. Neelima came to Hyderabad on July 21 and was residing with her mother at Kukatpally.
Her husband runs a mobile phone franchisee and lives in Chandanagar. On Tuesday night, he dropped her at her mother’s residence.
“Suresh claims that his wife spoke to him over mobile phone till 9 p.m. and asked him to pick her from home on Wednesday morning. We’re analysing call data record to ascertain facts,” the investigators said. Meanwhile, her mother lodged a complaint with the police raising suspicions over possible foul play by someone at Infosys campus. “The victim’s mother didn’t name anyone but doubted if anyone at the campus was responsible for the death since her daughter died there,” Mr. Balakoti said. She also alleged that there was inordinate delay in informing about the death to her.
A case of suspicious death under section 174 of Criminal Procedure Code was registered.
