Police said the youth resorted to suicide

Kin of MBA student, Palagani Ramakrishna (22), who died mysteriously, alleged that the family members of the woman with whom he was missing along with the police beat him to death. “Now they are trying to create the scene as a suicide,” they said.

However, the police said that the youth resorted to suicide by consuming poison.

Speaking to The Hindu on Monday, Ramakrishna’s father P. Sambasiva Rao said that police caught his son and the woman at Salem in Tamil Nadu.

Based on the information provided by Tamil Nadu police, G. Konduru police took them into custody.

“The police and the family members of the woman beat Ramakrishna and made him consume poison to make the murder look like a suicide. They threw the body near the tracks at Tadepalli in Guntur District, and sent the woman to her parent’s house located in Ravicherla village”, Mr. Sambasiva Rao alleged.

Victim’s mother Vani said that the G. Konduru police connived with the woman’s family members and killed her son.

When we went to the police to enquire about the case, G. Konduru SI Abdul Haq did not behaved properly and thrashed the women.

When contacted, Superintendent of Police J. Prabhakara Rao said that Ramakrishna and the woman were missing since June 28. Police caught them while they were trying to take sleeping pills at a medical store in Tamil Nadu and the Salem police informed the G. Konduru police.

However, the Tamil Nadu police let off Ramakrishna, even before the A.P. police arrived, the SP said.

“One head constable K. Sambasiva Rao along with the woman’s family members went to Tamil Nadu and brought the woman back. Police did not take Ramakrishna into custody.

His body was found at Tadepalli on July 4 in a highly decomposed condition. In the preliminary post-mortem report, doctors said that poisonous substances were found in viscera samples”, said Mr. Prabhakara Rao.
