Homealone woman found dead

Close on the heels of a homemaker murdered in K G Nagar on Tuesday, another homealone woman, Sujatha Reddy, 45, was found murdered with her throat slit at her house in Yashodha Nagar, opposite Jakkur Airfield, on Wednesday afternoon.

A native of Maravapalli, a village near Mulbagal, Sujatha lived at a rented house in Yashodha Nagar for the past three years following the death of her husband Eshwar Reddy. Her two daughters — Mouna and Meghana —  are married and live separately with their families in the City.

She was into tailoring besides dabbling as small time real estate broker in the area, to eke out a living.

Undressed, Sujatha was found lying in a pool of blood in her bedroom when one of her aunts Swarna Gowri came calling.

Family issue

According to the aunt, Sujatha had called her about a family issue, inviting her to come over next day. However, when she found that Sujatha’s mobile phone was switched off since Tuesday, she grew suspicious and rushed to check.

According to DCP (North-East) T R Suresh, from the scene of crime it was evident that there was no forcible entry into the house, nor any materials were disturbed. 

The police, however, discovered fresh beer bottles, suggesting somebody known to the woman had visited her. A dog squad which was pressed into service led the team to a nearby bar. Yelahanka Police have registered a murder case and two special teams have been formed to conduct the investigation.
