Amaravati, December 6

A software professional allegedly killed his girlfriend in Guntur district after she started avoiding him following differences and also tried to end his life, police said on Tuesday.

The 20 year-old victim, identified as Tapaswi, a dental student, came in contact with the accused Gnaneswar on social media two years ago. Their friendship blossomed into love but, over the past few months, differences had cropped up between them.

Ever since she had been avoiding him even as he tried to patch up.

A couple of months ago, the woman lodged a complaint with the police in Vijayawada against him, following which he was "counselled" not to harass her.

The student was staying with her friend at Takkellapdu near Guntur for over a week now.

Knowing her whereabouts, Gnaneswar went to Takkellapadu on Monday night and tried talking to her.

Following a heated argument, he took out a knife and slit Tapaswi's throat even as her frightened friend ran out of the house to alert the neighbours.

Gnaneswar dragged a bleeding Tapaswi into an adjoining room and locked it up before the locals came and broke open the doors.

He cut his arm on seeing the locals before he was overpowered. They handed him over to the police.

Meanwhile, the bleeding girl was taken to a private hospital in Guntur, where she succumbed to her injuries.

The Pedakakani police registered a case and started an investigation.
