Serial killer accused of killing 13  women arrested

The Bowenpally police here have unearthed the mystery behind murders of five women since April 2012 with the arrest of two persons.

Sailu alias Ramulu (42) of Jagityala mandal in Karimnagar district and Methari Bala Narsimha (32) of Tandoor town in RR District were arrested in a toddy compound. The police recovered two pairs of gold earrings, 40 tulas of silver anklets and one mobile phone. Two cases each were registered against them at the Bowenpally and the Chandnagar police stations and one case at the Dundigal police station in Cyberabad.

The main accused Ravi used to lure women to toddy compounds by promising them handsome amounts for sexual favours. He made them consume toddy before strangulating them with their sarees. After killing the women, he used to decamp with their gold and silver jewelleries.

The accused was involved in murders of eight more women in Narsingi, Toopran, Sangareddy Rural, Dundigal, Narsapur, Kukatpally and Raidurgam police limits. He was also involved in robbery at Medak district, house breaks at IDA Bollaram and thefts at Rajender Nagar and Raidurgam.

A special operation team of the Cyberabad police had earlier arrested him. He was sent to the Cherlapally jail, where he came in contact with other criminals serving life terms. In December 2011, he got himself admitted to the Erragadda mental hospital along criminals like Narasaiah, Afroz Khan, Griraj Singh Vaghela, Yadagiri and Lachaiah. They managed to escape from the hospital following which a case was registered at the S R Nagar police station. Lachaiah and Afroz Khan, also booked in the case, are absconding. 

After escaping from the hospital, he continued with the earlier modus operandi. He murdered two women in the Chandanagar police limits in April and May 2012. He later shifted to IDA Bollarum and found work in a stone crushing unit. There he came in contact with Bala Narsimha. The duo murdered two women in 2012 at Dundigal and Bowenpally, besides another woman on April 18, 2013, at the recovery camp of the military area under the Bowenpally police limits.  With the help of evidences gathered from the spot, the Bowenpally police nabbed both accused. They have confessed to the crimes during interrogation.
