Guntur police only protecting the crime scene, says SP
Family disputes led to kidnap and murder
Murder attempt on Vaishnavi’s mother six months ago
GUNTUR: The charred remains of Naga Vaishanavi’s body were being scientifically investigated by Forensic Science experts from Vijayawada as only the outline of the body has remained in the ‘boiler-cum-furnace’ of the Sarada Industries in the Plot No.445 of Guntur Autonagar. If someone touches the body it would turn into ashes immediately.
Guntur Superintendent of Police Shankha Brata Bagchi said that the Guntur police were only protecting the crime scene and investigators from Vijayawada police were looking into the case and forensic experts were determining if the body was that of Vaishnavi.
None other than the police were allowed near the body. People thronged the site and they were having a tough time keeping people at bay.
The ‘boiler-cum-furnace’ was hot, which suggests that the girl was murdered and put in the ‘boiler-cum-furnace’ in the past 36 hours, though by the time the Vijayawada police could trace the body based on information given by Venkata Rao, brother of P. Prabhakar Rao’s first wife Venkata Ramanamma.
This industrial unit also belongs to another cousin of Prabhakar’s first wife.
The unit being the last one in that street close to railway track not money people would have noticed the activity, the police believe.
A murder attempt was made six months ago on Narmada (Vaishnavi’s mother) by the culprit in this case, which was hushed up. Relatives of Mr. Prabhakar, who arrived here on getting the information, opined that the killers were not intending to extract money, but it was the dispute over one-acre site at Gollapudi that led to all this.
Prabhakar was too much attached to Vaishnavi and they wanted to somehow hit back at him mentally by killing the girl.
Rayapati expresses anguish
Guntur MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao visited the location and expressed anguish at the incident.
Telugu Desam Party MLC Nannapaneni Rajakumari took exception to police failure in detecting the location of the girl for 60 hours.
