A woman has been taken into custody after a BJP worker from Hyderabad was allegedly murdered on Wednesday night in Yousufguda. The woman had allegedly lured the BJP worker into her house, where he was killed.
P Ramu, 36, a resident of Kukatpally and native of Singapatnam in Nagarkurnool, was reportedly stabbed to death on the terrace of the woman's house by a group of eight people.
Ramu, who recently joined the BJP during the last Telangana Assembly elections, suffered multiple stab wounds and injuries to his private parts.
CCTV footage showed evidence of Ramu visiting Yousufguda at night after a conversation with the woman. He had previously resided in Yousufguda before moving to Kukatpally.
The police have taken the woman into custody and are interrogating her to uncover the complete conspiracy behind the crime.
On Thursday afternoon, several people, including a history-sheeter from Borabanda named Jeelani, surrendered to the police. It remains unclear if Manikanta was among them.
Ramu's family had alleged a murder plot against him a year ago due to a financial dispute with the accused. "For the past year, there have been differences between Ramu and his friend. On learning about the conspiracy to kill him, Ramu had attacked him," a relative of Ramu said.
