A witness in the Hyderabad techie’s alleged rape and murder case told the court Wednesday that he had seen the woman leave the LTT station with the accused on a bike early morning on January 5, 2014.
According to the police, the software engineer reached LTT on January 5 and subsequently went missing. Her severely decomposed body was found in Bhandup on the Eastern Express Highway on January 16.
The accused, Chandrabhan Sanap, according to the police, spotted the techie at railway station and offered to drop her to her destination. He then took her to the taxi stand where the victim found that he had a two-wheeler and not the cab.
The witness was the supervisor of parking attendants at LTT station.
The special woman’s court, which is hearing the case, recorded his statement that said, “Around 5:15 am, I saw said person (Sanap). I saw there was a conversation between the said girl (victim) and the man for one minute and she sat at the back side of the motorbike.”
The witness also told the court he had seen Sanap with a trolley bag in his hand, which he placed on the front side of the bike, while the techie carried a backpack on her shoulders. “She was wearing jeans and a top and was having a shawl like odhini. She passed the gate where I was standing,” he said. The parking attendant told the court that he remembered Sanap very well.
