HYDERABAD: Had 21-year-old chartered accountancy student Vasireddy Poojitha of Nandigama in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh, whose charred body was found in the high- security zone of Punjagutta Officers’ Colony here, had heated arguments with her friend Akshay Kumar at dinner just a few hours before her death? Police, who are investigating the case, are learnt to have have received information suggesting it.
According to officials who are associated with the investigation, Poojitha, after coming to the city, met Akshay. They went to a hotel in Secunderabad. “During their dinner hours before the incident took place, the duo had arguments on certain issue. Later, Akshay dropped her off at the Secunderabad railway station and gave her a send-off. However, the next day morning, her charred body was found in Punjagutta Colony,” police said.
Even though the police who found a suicide note that was purportedly left by Poojitha, the family members alleged that Poojitha was murdered by some person. Her grandfather Ramalingaiah, who came to the city to receive her body, alleged that the police failed to conduct a thorough investigation to crack the case. The city police wanted to wash of their hands by dismissing it as a suicide, basing on her alleged note.
“Why did Poojitha go to Punjagutta Colony to commit suicide after she had been seen off by her friend Akshay in Secunderabad? If she poured petrol over her head and set herself ablaze, how come the whole body was charred? Had she wanted to commit suicide, why did she come to Hyderabad to do it?” he asked.
Two days ago, the charred body of Poojitha was found by the police in the Officers’ Colony at Punjagutta. A match-box, a water bottle and a wine bottle were also found at the scene.
