The Chennai police on Thursday released a high-resolution image of the suspect in the murder of Infosys employee Swathi. On Monday, the case was transferred from railway police to the Chennai police after Madras High Court’s intervention.
On Wednesday, the police had discovered that the killer was a young man who was following Swathi since May. Police reportedly took the help of a Hyderabad-based digital forensic firm to take out high-resolution pictures of the accused.
This can be seen as a major development in the case as even after days of incident, the police was not able to identify the accused because of poor quality of cctv video.
The police is now seeking help from people to help trace the murderer. Swathi was hacked to death on a platform in Nugambakkam railway station in Chennai at around 6:30 am on June 24.
