Uma Maheswari was an employee with TCS, Siruseri. Her death case was transferred to CB-CID and the officials inspected the spot of her death.
Special Arrangement Uma Maheswari was an employee with TCS, Siruseri. Her death case was transferred to CB-CID and the officials inspected the spot of her death.

A day after the probe into the death of a 24-year-old woman IT employee was transferred to Crime Branch-CID of Tamil Nadu Police, CB-CID on Monday inspected the spot where her body was found, officials said.

They looked for clues for the whereabouts of the woman’s mobile phone which was switched off a few minutes after she left her office on the night of February 13, 2014, they said.

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa had on Sunday transferred the investigation into the death of the woman, an employee of Tata Consultancy Services, to the CB-CID.

The victim, a native of Salem district, lived in Medavakkam and had been working with TCS at Siruseri since February 2013.

Tamil Nadu Police has also announced a reward of Rs. two lakh for information leading to the identity of the culprits.

The autopsy revealed she had stab injuries in four places, which is believed to have led to her death.

The woman’s body was found near her office premises near Siruseri in the city outskirts on Sunday, nine days after she went missing.

My subterranean commiseration and pity for Miss.Uma Maheshwari’s
family. When I first saw this heart ripping happening on the
television. I really felt awful concerning the parents state. A
personality on the TV said with no difficulty, “the girl should have
been cautious and must have used the company’s vehicle it’s her error
(does this unintelligent creature recognize he’s finding mistakes
with a human being who’s no more).” Will that man be able to
articulate the same way if his family had to have this kind of a
stalk..? And another said don’t know if its an affair, finally news
broadcast pops that this poor person has been murdered by merciless
persons. Without knowing anything about a person, how do people have
hearts to speak like this? Do we understand one thing most of all this
happens at north and by people from north. When punishments go hard-
hitting and take place at public automatically things will be fine
with redemption NO DOUBT.
India is freedom is really given but people take it for granted.

the girl during delhi bus ride..this guy was very bold enoght to say we
will come out of the case within few years and mocked the media

trafficking are all punishable by death under the strict of Sharia

yet another instance of migrant population found involved in a
dastardly crime in Chennai and this time it is after her duty hours
and in the vicinity of an IT Giant company.

Is it not the responsibility of TCS to ensure either providing
exclusive dormitory accommodation for women Or providing secured drop
back home? They may even offer it at a cost.

Entire nation stood up when Devyani Khobragade, diplomate in US was
checked as per local rules for a reported incident whereas the
reaction in this case to a less known IT employee's plight did not
attract media's attention as it should otherwise be.

Barring placing one small level Police official under suspension for
dereliction of duties there is not much of action from the Department
which is under a powerful woman Chief Minister. The best desirable
action would probably be a senior Police official in the rank of DGP
to own accountability and to have resigned.

Will the Police action be same had it happened to Minister's daughter
?

Government should ask the companies to provide suitable working hours
for female employees, like government offices, banks, schools, etc.
Otherwise, they should ask the companies to provide proper and safe
conveyance, accommodation at their cost. Why TCS allowed the girl to go
out at 10 pm ? After, 8 pm, the girls should not be allowed to come out
in darkness alone. TCS should provide accommodation and food for night
stay, like some other companies. TCS should treat employees with
concern. Salary is not the only factor.

Very sad. How can India call herself a great democracy until the safety of her women is ensured?
Prayers for Uma Maheshwari and her family;may her soul rest in peace. I hope the people who did this horrific crime are caught soon and brought to justice. Appreciate CM Jaya Lalitha interest and the involvement of CBI-CID. Someone must know something about this crime, which could not have happened in a vacuum without anyone's knowledge/

There is no safety for a woman in India and it is very important for a woman may she be working or non-working to make sure she is not at a wrong place in the wrong time. How do you determine wrong time and wrong place - for example, waiting for a bus in the night (when its dark) or in an isolated place must be considered as a 'wrong place' and a 'wrong time' considering the safety these days.

Lack of adequate facilities in SIPCOT is also a reason for this tragic event. Autos ply without authorization, SIPCOT road used as a public road, No security presence in SIPCOT are some of the major reasons for this incident. Those who work in SIPCOT experience the risk of plying in overcrowded unauthorized autos operated by gangs. Any lady associate traveling in these autos at night is always at risk.
