HYDERABAD: A woman, said to be a former Maoist, was found murdered at her residence in Ramanthapur under the Uppal police limits Friday. Veeramalla Pushpa (35), was found with her throat slit and lying in a pool of blood.
According to the police, Pushpa was staying with her children at Pragathinagar in Ramanthapur since last one year. After her children went to school on Friday morning leaving her alone, some intruders are believed to have barged in around 12.30 p.m. and murdered her.
Pushpa's husband Ganesh Babu, who was said to be a Maoist sympathiser once, had been murdered around three years ago.
Pushpa was an accused in the case and investigators believe her murder now could be connected to her husband's death.
Sources associated with the investigation said that Pushpa got married to Ganesh Babu, an advocate, about 10 years ago. However, differences cropped up between them and Ganesh reportedly even married Pushpa's sister afterwards. He was murdered later.
Sources said that Pushpa's murder could be the handiwork of someone known to Ganesh Babu.
