VIJAYAWADA: Mystery continues to shroud the death of a young newly-married woman at Landmark Apartments in Ayodhyanagar area in the city under Ajit Singh Nagar police limits, couple of days ago. The woman was found dead after a fall from the terrace of the five-storeyed building.
Though it was initially thought that the victim - Ch Sowjanya (28), a software engineer who was married to one Dileep, also a software engineer from Krishnalanka area of the city on May 20, might have fallen to death accidentally or has been a victim of sunstroke as the incident happened around 3:30 p.m. on that day, the footage of CCTV cameras of the apartment tell a different tale.
Police, who verified the footage, registered a case of death occurring under suspicious circumstances and took up investigation. According to the Ajit Singh Nagar police, investigation is going on to ascertain whether it was a case of suicide or homicide.
Sowjanya was out of station on a week-long tour. After she returned to the city, her husband left for Hyderabad on May 25. She was supposed to travel to Hyderabad two days later on May 27.
At the time of her death, her parents were not present in the house as they had gone to attend a marriage at Tenali in Guntur district. When they were alerted about their daughter’s death, they rushed home. Efforts to contact them proved futile, as they refused to speak to the media.
