Police investigating the death of Infosys employee Neelima Yeruva on Tuesday are following up on a text message sent by her to a mobile phone in Mumbai, which suggests that she was in some emotional difficulty.
‘I lost everything in my life. I want to be a good wife to you in my next birth,” was the last text message sent from Neelima’s phone at 9.45 p.m. on July 31, shortly before she fell to her death on the parking lot of the Infosys Hyderabad campus.
Three days after the death, Cyberabad police have broken the passwords to Neelima’s email accounts and unlocked her Samsung cell phone. However, they found no data in the phone and suspect she deleted her contact numbers, caller lists and SMSes before her death.
Police then approached the service provider to get her call and SMS data. They say the mobile phone to which the last message was sent is located in Mumbai.
Pursuing further leads in the mystery, police are planning to question a man named Prashant, aka Pandu, with whom Neelima was said to have been in touch by email. Prashant is reportedly a senior IT professional working with Cognizant and had been a colleague of Neelima at an IT firm.
“Neelima was in touch with Prashant by email. Neelima sent him several emails but he replied to only a few,” police sources said.
