The Langer Houz police have finally cracked the murder mystery of 62-year-old woman, who was killed a year ago, by arresting a married woman and her lover on Friday.
On October 15, 2014, Laxmi Tulsi, a resident of Langer Houz was murdered at her home and her gold jewellery were stolen by unknown persons.
Initially, the police investigated the case assuming that professional criminals might have murdered Tulasi for gain, but could not find any clues.
After questioning nearly 150 persons, police came to know that one young woman, who was closely moving with Tulasi, was absconding since the death of Tulasi.
Further investigation led to the arrest of Myadam Anusha, 21, wife of Gopi of Metpally village in Karimnagar and her lover, Kothakonda Rajashekar alias Shekar, 24, of Uppumadugu village in Karimnagar.
During interrogation, police found that with an intention to steal gold jewelleries, Anusha developed friendship and accordingly she and Rajashekar went to the house of Tulasi and threatened her to handover the gold jewelleries. When Tulasi raised an alarm, the duo slit her throat and fled with a gold chain, ear rings, I-Pad, I-Phone, Laptop and Rs 4,000 cash.
Intending to lead a lavish life, the couple committed the crime. West Zone DCP A Venkateshwar Rao said the team had also seized gold jewelleries weighing about nine tolas, one I-Pad, I-Phone and American dollars, all worth Rs 2.5 lakh.
