A man allegedly throttled his 26-year-old wife and four-month-old child to death, and later set the bodies ablaze at an open plot in Ghatkesar. The culprit, a B Tech graduate, was arrested subsequently for the double murder.

The incident came to light on Sunday when locals saw the charred remains of the victims at an open plot in Kondapur village in Ghatkesar and alerted police through revenue officials. As the accused belongs to a BC community and his wife is from an SC community, police were verifying if it was a case of honour killing.

Around 10 am, M Venkatesham, revenue inspector of Ghatkesar, lodged a complaint with the police stating that village revenue assistant of Kondapur received information about someone killing and burning the bodies of unknown people in an open land in Kondapur village.

As Ghatkesar police were trying to establish the identity of the victims, their counterparts from Palakurthi in Jangaon district informed that one Ramesh of Gudur village in Palakurthi mandal approached them saying he had throttled his wife and four-month-old son to death, and then set the bodies ablaze at Ghatkesar.

The victims were identified as Sushruta, and her yet-to-be named son. In 2015, Sushruta, a native of Bollikunta village in Warangal district, fell in love with Ramesh, a native of Gudur village.

Sushruta, a B Pharmacy graduate, belonged to a Scheduled Caste community, while Ramesh is a BTech graduate and belongs to a Backward Caste. He is working at a private company in Vikarabad. Their family members were against the marriage, and the couple got married at Arya Samaj, Ghatkesar inspector P Raghuveer Reddy said.

“Ramesh claimed Sushruta was staying with her parents for the past eight months because of differences with him. On Saturday evening, she along with the infant went to Uppal to meet Ramesh,” the inspector said.

“The couple, along with their boy went near ORR in Ghatkesar to discuss their problems. They had an argument. After the verbal duel, Sushruta consumed sleeping pills and she even fed the powder of a pill to the child. Ramesh did not stop her. As his wife was feeling drowsy, he drove them on a bike to a nearby open land. Ramesh throttled his wife and child. Then, set them ablaze on a heap of logs found at the open land using petrol purchased from a filling station nearby,” he said. The police arrested Ramesh and registered a case under Section 302 and 201 of the IPC.
