HYDERABAD: Cyberabad police arrested Amit Singh (22) the spurned lover who who brutally murdered two sisters, Yamini Saraswathi (23) and Srilekha (21) on leaving behind 18 and 10 stab injuries in LB Nagar on July 14. Interrogation of the accused revealed that he had planned to murder Srilekha and was waiting for an opportunity for nearly 2 months.
The Cyberabad Police, who arrested the accused on Tuesday morning, 14 days after committing the gruesome crime, said that the accused managed to stay absconding by travelling to the states of Maharashtra, Chattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Delhi and constantly changing mobile phones and sim cards.
Home minister Nayini Narasimha Reddy and Cyberabad police commissioner CV Anand visited the parents of the victims at their residence at Mohannagar in LB Nagar on Tuesday.
According to Police, Amit Singh escaped to Kazipet after committing the crime from where he proceeded to Itarsi by train. From Itarsi he went to Mathura by train. Suspecting that police will track him down, he went to Agra. He then travelled to Jaipur and then to Ajmer Dargah. He even wanted to speak to the soul of deceased Srilekha with the help of a godman. As the godman asked the accused to come back after 40 days, he went to Surat and then to Shiridi. After staying in Shiridi for three days, he went to Manmed and boarded a train to Mathura, where he met his parents and took shelter there.
When the Police teams reached Mathura, Amit left for Hyderabad for unknown reasons. But enroute to Hyderabad, Medchal Police caught him on July 28 morning.
During interrogation, it was revealed that Amit Singh was stalking deceased Srilekha ever since the family moved from Shadnagar to LB Nagar in 2014. The accused also took a room in the same area and was disturbing Srilekha. The mother of the deceased had on three occasions warned the father of the accused and asked him to advice his son accused not to harass Srilekha on the pretext of love. But Amar Singh, the father of the accused, failed to control his son and the accused did not change his attitude. About two months prior to the murder, Srilekha strictly warned the accused and stopped entertaining him. This provoked the accused who decided to kill Srilekha, added Police.
