Murder mystery solved

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, APRIL 12. The Khusaiguda police on Monday solved the mystery behind the killing of a history-sheeter, Sadanandam, with the arrest of four persons. The prime accused, G. Raghavender Reddy, who poisoned his brother-in-law, Jagadiswar Rao, to death in December 2000, confessed to the police that he had eliminated Sadanandam as the latter blackmailed him over the killing of Rao.

In his confessional statement, Reddy maintained that he was forced to kill his brother-in-law as he harassed his sister. Four years ago, Reddy murdered Rao by offering him liquor laced with insecticide. Later, he dumped Rao's body at an isolated place under the limits of Nacharam police station. "A case of suspicious death was registered at that time by the Nacharam police.

The case would be altered after taking up investigation afresh in the light of Reddy's confession," the Khusaiguda Inspector, V. Vara Prasada Rao, said.

A resident of Goshamahal, Reddy came in contact with Sadanandam a few years ago. The two were involved in the killing of a history-sheeter, Nandu. Subsequently, Reddy shifted to HCL colony. He took up paddy business and suffered losses.

Meanwhile, Reddy allegedly eliminated his brother-in-law following family dispute. On learning about this, Sadanandam allegedly told Reddy to reveal about the killing. Reddy hatched a plan with D. Balwantha Reddy, Prasad and B. Prabhakar to kill Sadanandam.

On April 3, Reddy invited Sadanandam for a party. They consumed liquor at ECIL crossroads. Later, Sadanandam was taken to outskirts of RTC colony. While Prabhakar and Prasad held the victim, the other two inflicted knife injuries on him. Later, they smashed his head with a boulder.
