The alleged murder of engineering student Divya Tejaswini in Vijayawada over love affair has set ripples in the state while the accused was under critical condition after he stabbed himself.
According to the statement given by Tejaswini’s family, 24-year-old man Nagendra Babu who is a painter by profession slit the throat of the victim in their residence. The family also admitted that Nagendra then inflicted three injuries to his own stomach, neck and wrist.
However, the case took a shocking twist with accused Nagendra’s statement with the police from the hospital. According to the sources, Nagendra Babu claiming that he and Tejaswini were married a year back and has submitted all necessary proofs in support of his claims. While the health of the accused remained critical, it has turned a challenge for the police to interrogate him.
Reportedly, Nagendra’s brother as well admitted with the police that Tejaswini and his brother were in love from the past seven years which is not in terms with the girl’s family.
In contrary to the above claims, Tejaswini’s family refuted Nagendra’s statements over marrying their daughter. They also stated that no one of them is familiar with Nagendra or his family. On the other hand, a picture of Tejaswini and Nagendra where the former was seen with mangalsutr is making rounds on social media.
Amidst the allegation made by both the families, the police investigation turned crucial as a few eyewitnesses claimed that they have spotted a saree tied to the fan in the victim’s room. The police stated that they are digging into the call data of all the people connected with the case including Tejaswini’s parents.
