Hyderabad: Engineer kills girlfriend, stuffs body in suitcase and dumps it in drain

Daijiworld Media Network

Hyderabad, Apr 15: B Lavanya (25), a system engineer at TCS Synergy Park in Gachibowli, was killed and her body was throttled and stuffed up in a suitcase dumped in a city drain by her boyfriend Sunil Kumar (25).

Sunil Kumar, a structural engineer in a city-based company, was reportedly harassing and pressurizing the girl to marry him. Lavanya’s family had been trying to reach her through phone since her missing on April 7. Police arrested Sunil on Saturday night using his call history details.

Lavanya and Sunil Kumar fell in love while pursuing their engineering degree at CMR College of Engineering and Technology. But the college love story had a short life and ended in a tragic agony.

As per TOI report, Sunil Kumar were lying to the girls family that he got a job in Muscat and was ready for the marriage. RC Puram inspector P Ramchandra Rao said. “After Lavanya’s family dropped them at the RGI Airport on April 4, Sunil told her that their flight was cancelled and checked into the Airport Lodge saying that they will take the next day’s flight,” ACP S Ravi Kumar said. “Lavanya again raised the topic of marriage at the lodge and an argument broke out between them. Sunil throttled her and then stuffed the body in a suitcase on April 5 evening. That night he took the body to Sooraram in the city and dumped it in a drain,” the ACP said, adding that it was concealed in the drain under a ramp in front of local school so people did not notice it.

On April 7 Sunil sent messages from Lavanya’s phone to her sister saying she had landed in the city and then switched it off. The family got anguish and lodged a missing complaint since her phone was unreachable for a long time. “Based on Sunil’s confession, we recovered the body. He was produced before a magistrate on Sunday and sent to judicial remand,” the ACP said to TOI.

    barbaric , but when there no laws no protect rights of men ( as girls can dump them at their own will ) , such things happen, men r forced to take law into their own hands

    Very sad and tragic.Feel very sorry for the family,parents,bringing up a girl giving education till engineering so that she may be happy later to get a good job,in life to have agood Prty to marry.Now all their wishes troubles went in vain.within mintutes a person whoom they believed and loved simply destroyed their dreams..Poor soul may rest in peace inHeaven.One who loves a girl or boy would not put pressure to marry her,wait till she is ready or go when not ready to marry.but not kill and dump as if it is a waste bin kachra.Had no heart ,no humanity towards her.Love?Really he loved her or her body or money?His parents must answer this to her parents.Punish him for life long.

    If the love has no honesty and sincerity this is the result. Whatever may be your education you have.

    It is unbelievable but true that a matured educated engineer would go to such an extent to kill his educated engineer girl friend. RIP Lavanya, you are in a better place. I feel sorry for her parents and loved ones who are going through tragedy. Sunil Kumar, now you have to face the tune of the police department and also the law but now it is too late.

    They were in love for 7 years and of late, the boy, after promising her of marriage, wanted to drop out.
    He told the girl's parents, that he had found a job for her in Muscat and would take her for interview. All this is only to kill her and dump her.

    For some men, women are like fruits. Like fruit, every woman has her unique shape, color, aroma and taste. But, there is a problem with such men, that, they want fruit salad.
