Visakhapatnam: The Visakhapatnam police unraveled the mystery behind the sensational Mrudula murder and arrested the murderer on Thursday.
According to the police, the principal suspect Siva, knows the family of Mrudula, whose father is a petrol bunk owner. He sought Rs 3 lakhs to clear a loan. As they refused, he wanted to rob their house. He went to their house with three others and found Mrudula alone. When she tried to raise alarm, he killed her. When he was searching the house for money, he saw a petrol pump employee coming. Scared that they would be caught, the three escaped from the scene.
The media raised a hue and cry about the murder as there were a series of attacks on women in Visakhapatnam in recent times. Irked by the criticism, the city Police Commissioner set up four investigation teams to nab the murderers and unraveled the mystery.
Police said Siva confessed to murdering Mrudula for money. (NSS)
