Five women killed in 35 days, hand of serial killer suspected

SANGAREDDY: The Medak police suspect the hand of a serial killer in the murder of five women in a span of 35 days in different parts of Medak town and rural police limits. The police are puzzled as the cause of deaths has not been ascertained by the district forensic experts and the viscera has been sent to the State forensic lab at Hyderabad for an expert opinion.

Two victims identified

The first murder was committee in Edupayala region on March 24 and the body of this middle-aged woman is yet to be identified. Another body was found in the dry wastelands of Aurangabad area in Medak rural limits, followed by one more on the premises of the Medak church on the concrete road leading to the Medak College. Later, the victim was identified as Bacharam Sujatha, a resident of Annaram village of Papannapet mandal.

A few days later the putrefied body of Erolla Pochamma, native of Timmayapalli, was found in the barren lands of Narsikhed under Medak town limits. On Thursday the police found one more body under the Barakaman Bridge on the Pushpalavagu.

Common thread

The circle inspector of Medak, Mohammad Hussain, speaking to The Hindu said that all the women were involved in flesh trade and the unknown killer sexually assaulted all of them. He said none of the bodies had any telltale signs of strangulation or knife injuries.

The police have also questioned one known lady-killer, Lambada Srinu, who was out on a bail recently, which yielded no results.
