Bengaluru: Man kills 16-year-old sister, dumps body on railway track | Bengaluru News


BENGALURU: A 21-year-old youth allegedly murdered his 16-year-old pregnant sister and tried to project it as suicide by dumping the body before a moving train near Horamavu railway bridge, northeast Bengaluru, early Monday.
But his plan failed as an apartment resident saw someone dumping the body on the railway track and fleeing from the spot around 1.45am. The resident alerted the police control room and Ramamurthynagar cops rushed to the spot, shifted the girl’s body minutes before a goods train arrived.
Police identified the girl as the daughter of daily-wage labourers and lived with mother and an elder brother in a shed in Ramamurthynagar. Recently, her brother learnt that his sister was in relationship with a boy and had become pregnant.
He and his mother worried about the consequences if the matter came to light. The duo chided the girl. Her brother reportedly took it as a matter of prestige. He decided to eliminate the girl and planned to dump the body on the railway track, about 50 metres from the shed.
He allegedly smothered her to death late Sunday night when she was in sleep. Later, he shifted her body and dumped it on the railway track before returning home.
Body found on railway track
After receiving a tipoff, Ramamurthynagar police alerted Cantonment Railway cops as the body was found on the railway track. DR Siri Gowri, superintendent of police (railways), and Ashok D, deputy superintendent of police (railways), formed a team to crack the case.
“We identified the girl with locals’ help. Her mother and brother told us she left home at midnight to answer nature’s call and never came back,” Gowri told TOI. Preliminary probe suggests the brother is a suspect, and police have detained him for questioning. He confessed to the crime and further probe is on to know others’ involvement in the case.
