Had zeroed in on second victim

Had not the police acted on time, Raghu and Shekar would have added one more victim to the list.

Shekar was earlier working with a pharmaceutical agency at Lansdowne building.

The owner was residing nearby Jagan Mohan Palace and Shekar knew about the daily transactions that was running up to several lakhs.

While the owner leaves for office in the morning, two of his kids go to school and thus remains the lonely woman in the house.

It was the right time to strike, according to Shekar.

After doing Ashwini to death, the two stashed away the booty at Doddamma Thayi Temple in their village. Shekar’s father is the priest of the temple.

They later checked into a lodge near Jagan Mohan Palace. They had even decided to turn their plans into reality on Monday (Aug 13).

Read newspapers

Soon after the murder, the two were eagerly waiting for newspapers in the morning. They heaved a sigh of relief after learning that the police are suspecting the role of unidentified persons.

What had multiplied their joy was, according to investigators, ‘they had successfully turned into professional killers without leaving a trace of doubt’.

It wasn’t, as the police could easily reach them with the call details of victim’s cellphone. According to police, media too helped in netting the accused.
