HYDERABAD: In a suspected case of acid administration by her live-in partner, a young woman died here on Monday after battling health complications for five days.
G Reena Rani, 26, breathed her last at the Gandhi Hospital here, but after delivering a 16-week-old stillborn baby. The victim was admitted to Gandhi Hospital here on May 13 by her mother G Grace, after Reena’s partner Nalla Narender, 31, called up informing her that Reena was vomiting blood.
Though police are awaiting a report from the Forensic Science Laboratory to ascertain the reason for Reena’s death, Gandhi Hospital case sheet attributed it to corrosive acid ingestion. It said her intestines were bleeding while she was under treatment. Grace alleged that Reena was made to consume an unknown liquid by two persons. As doctors who initially conducted her postmortem did not suggest any signs of acid administration, the police had sent viscera samples to the FSL.
Malkajgiri DCP R Rama Rajeshwari said Narender did not confess to administering acid when he was questioned last week. But he has been on the run since then.
