Under immense pressure to bring the culprits to book in the gory rape and murder case of 23-year-old techie Esther Anuhya, the Mumbai police, which is alleged to have initially taken the case too lightly, finally appears to be pursuing the matter with seriousness, though without any breakthrough.

On Monday, a team from the Mumbai’s crime branch and another from the law and order wing arrived in the state --one arrived in Hyderabad and Machilipatnam, victim’s native place.

However, a breakthrough still eludes the investigators as all that they have with them so far is one suspect in their custody, images from the CCTV footage of an unknown person--which has not led them anywhere.

Three member police team from Kanjurmarg led by Inspector Ashok Phapale arrived in Machilipatnam and met Anuhya’s parents at her home. Phapale questioned SJS Prasad, father of Anuhya, about the  suspect whose visuals were recorded in CCTV. They also asked about Anuhya’s visit to Machilipatnam for Christmas and details of her journey to Mumbai from Vijayawada.

‘’The suspect who was captured by CCTV  is not known to me, my family or Anuhya,’’ Prasad told Express.
