Two held for murder in Ramgopalpet


Hyderabad: The Ramgopalpet police solved the murder case of Rahul, a youngster, who was killed last week at Agarvansi House, and arrested two persons here on Monday.

The arrested were E Satyanarayana (45) and P Srinivas Rao (32), both workers at function halls and footpath dwellers. Rahul, a rag picker, used to allegedly extort money from the suspects and when they refused to give him money, he attacked them.

According to the police, about three months ago, Rahul attacked Satyanarayana for not giving him money. Due to the injuries, Satyanarayana could not go to work. On the other hand, Rao bore a grudge against Rahul for harassing the former’s girlfriend.

Last Thursday, the duo met Rahul at a free meals centre. They brought two bottles of liquor and got Rahul drunk and when he fell unconscious, they smashed his head with a boulder.

The Ramgopalpet police identified the suspects with the help of surveillance camera footage, and they were nabbed from near the Lingampally Railway Station.
