It looked like any ordinary murder for gain.
But police investigation revealed a grisly murder plan gone awry.
A techie couple returning home to Nacharam was waylaid by two masked men on the night of September 14. While the husband was stabbed to death, the wife sported knife injuries and claimed that her gold chain was snatched by the robbers.
Nearly a week later, it turns out that the wife and her lover, who was one of the attackers, conspired to kill the husband. All the three were arrested and booked for murder on Friday.
Cyberabad police identified the victim as Venkateswar Rao, a diesel mechanic with APSRTC. Those arrested include his wife N Sowjanya, her lover Jaideep Deshi, both software engineers in Accenture, Bangalore, and their accomplice Swamy Raj Kumar.
According to the cops, Sowjanya and Jaideep knew each other since their graduation days and had worked together in various IT companies before joining Accenture in Bangalore. Venkateshwar Rao was scheduled to marry Sowjanya's elder sister Swetha but when she eloped two days before the wedding, her family got the younger sister married to him, much against her wishes. Since then, she maintained her ties with Jaideep and the two soon plotted to murder her husband.
As per the plan, Sowjanya and Jaideep came to Hyderabad from Bangalore on September 13 and a day later, she took Rao to the Sanghi temple in Hayatnagar. On their way back, Sowjanya said she wanted to attend to call of nature and asked her husband to stop the two-wheeler near a deserted place. Thanks to SMS alerts from her, the lover and accomplice, who were waiting at the spot, attacked Rao. When the cops came, Sowjanya showed them bruises on her hand and claimed the 'robbers' had stoel her gold chain.
In a press release, deputy commissioner of police (LB Nagar) Ravi Verma said the trio were arrested for murder and trying to project it as murder for gain. The case was cracked based on call data records of the accused and voice recording samples found in her phone.
