Man kills fiance for chatting on mobile, dumps body in lake

In a case of jilted love, a man killed his would-be wife, suspecting her fidelity, and packed her body in a polythene sack and dumped it into the BDL lake near Kukatpally here.

The body was fished out on Saturday after the culprit surrendered before the police and narrated the gory details of the murder.

According to Kukatpally police, R Soumya, an intermediate student from Jeedimetla, was reported missing on Friday by her parents as she could not be reached on her mobile phone and did not return home from college.

Her parents suspected her fiancé K Krishnaiah, a cab driver. Even before the police could apprehend him, Krishnaiah landed at the police station, under which the BDL lake falls. He admitted to killing his fiancée in a fit of rage.

Police said the suspect had got angry when he found Soumya chatting with someone on her mobile phone. On Friday, he took her to Chintal forest area where he strangulated her to death.

He then got a sack from the municipal dumping ground and packed her body in it before disposing it off in the lake.

Police have sent the body for postmortem to Gandhi Hospital. Krishnaiah has been booked under IPC Sections 363, 302 and 201, and has been remanded in judicial custody.

Married, divorced

The case took a curious turn when Soumya’s grandfather and mother fought over the body at the mortuary. Soumya’s aunt Kalyani told reporters that the victim was married four years ago.

“She divorced her husband and was staying with her grandfather and studying,” Kalyani said.

She said Soumya’s marriage was fixed with Krishnaiah with the consent of both the families.

However Soumya’s mother, a widow, blamed her father-in-law for the tragedy.
