As the suspect made an attempt to escape, he robbed a woman and took her mobile and money. He also took away her vehicle and drove to the room where Vamshi was staying.
“They said us that he came to the complex, but could not find his way, and returned towards the exit. Meanwhile, Vamshi’s car was in the complex. Both vehicles crashed in the garage. Instantly the killer got down and pointing a pistol at Vamshi robbed him of his wallet and mobile. He then shot him and escaped,” Ravinder said.
“My child was attached to him. He remembers his uncle talking to him every day, but he does not know that he has been murdered. When Vamshi’s picture is shown on newspaper or TV he points saying, mama. Akshaya assumed he is dead and is in shock,” Ravinder whispered. Vamshi’s father M. Sanjeeva Reddy, a farmer, said they all the time wanted him to take up a job here, but he went overseas as most of his friends were there.
