TextEditorThe death of 22-year-old software engineer B Deepthi, who was found dead under suspicious circumstances at her residence in Korutla town of Jagtial district earlier this week, continues to be shrouded in mystery.
Her sister Chandana, 20, who went missing under mysterious circumstances from home on the day of the incident, along with her ‘boyfriend’, is believed to have been tracked down by a special police team from Telangana near Ongole in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh on Friday.
However, there was no immediate confirmation about this from the Korutla police.
The incident occurred on Tuesday when the girls’ parents were in Hyderabad to attend a function at their relative’s house. Police have reportedly recovered liquor bottles from the residence of the deceased.
An audio clip purportedly of Chandana in which she was heard saying she had nothing to do with the death of Deepthi went viral on social media on Wednesday. Police are yet to confirm the authenticity of the audio clip and trace Chandana.
“We are awaiting the forensic lab report to ascertain the exact cause of Deepthi’s death and make a breakthrough in the case,” said a police officer involved in the investigation.
Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports suggested that a police team from Korutla traced Chandana, her boyfriend, and the driver of a car in which they travelled to Ongole on Friday.
