Hyderabad: Asking for one’s share in father’s property is not a sin nor is a crime but shockingly this became the reason behind family turning into murderers.
According to reports, the deceased divorcee victim K. Shiva Nandini (38) survived by a 12-year-old Class VII student, was brutally killed by her own father, mother and younger brother simply because she asked for a share in the property.
The family after committing the crime poured cleaning acid on the body to erase their fingerprints and later went on to file a missing complaint with the police.
Unfortunately, a thorough investigation carried out by the police personnel unmasked the ugly faces of the family members.
The police have arrested Nandini’s brother K. Siddarth, 31, an assistant executive engineer with the government, K. Maisaiah, 73, her father and their mother Nirmala, 60, after a thorough investigation.
The police has sent victim’s son to the house of her paternal grandparents, DC reports.
According to the Police, Nandini was married off in 2004 and got divorced by her husband in 2017 due to personal issues, following which she moved in along with her son to live with her parents in in East Prasanthnagar, Moosarambagh.
On Wednesday evening, victim’s father Maisaiah lodged a missing complaint with the Malakpet police stating that Nandini left home on Monday morning and had not returned after the which the police started investigating.
“Nandini left saying she was going out. I thought she might have gone to a temple, but she did not return, even after two days,” said Maisaiah in his complaint.
But once the investigation begun the CCTV footage revealed victim did not leave the house at the time her father mentioned in his complaint.
“On thorough investigation, we found that Nandini’s parents and brother are involved in her death. Nandini’s younger brother Siddarth, who works as an assistant executive engineer in the irrigation department at Wanaparty, was questioned and he confessed,” said Malakpet inspector K.V. Subba Rao.
“Nandini was reportedly asking her parents to give her an open plot they own at Vanasthalipuram and for some money so that she could live on her own. There were disputes over this between the family members,” the inspector said.
“Maisaiah, Nirmala and Siddarth killed Nandini by throttling her in the house and poured toilet cleaning acid on the body to destroy evidence and dumped the body in the washroom,” inspector Subba Rao said.
However, after interrogation, the accused confessed to the crime and filed a case under IPC Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence).
