The police have again proved their mettle in Swathi murder case, which was a big challenge, she added. According to an official release, in the preliminary investigation, it was found that Ramkumar had murdered Swathi. Since there was no direct evidence, the police cracked the case and arrested the accused with the help of technology and scientific methods.
