BENGALURU: Forty five days after the Sanjaynagar police began their probe into the murder of businessman Paruchuri Surendra Kumar, they have no clues about the assailants. Kumar (51) was shot dead in front of his house in Sanjaynagar on October 30 when other residents were celebrating Diwali by burning crackers.
A senior police officer said that so far they had no clues about the accused as no one noticed their movements when they opened six rounds of fire at Kumar. Neither CCTV footage nor those questioned during the probe gave any leads to ascertain the identity of the accused, he added.
“We are investigating the case from all angles and have examined various evidences gathered during the investigation. Even a few staffers from the Intelligence Department also tried to find clues. But it was very difficult to find the whereabouts of the accused as either they are not locals or they came from another state,” the officer said.
“Special teams that were sent to Hyderabad, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi returned without any clues after questioning Kapil Saraswath, one of the prime suspects. When the probe began, the officials suspected Saraswath, who worked in Parachuri Foundation as he had a financial dispute when he was sacked from his job. So it will take some more days to solve the case,” he added.
