Police said that Priyanka Reddy was left stranded in Shamshabad after her two-wheeler broke down reportedly due to a puncture. Her sister Bhavya said that Priyanka had called her around 9.15 pm in the evening and said that someone had offered her a lift to get her flat tyre repaired.

In the call that lasted for six minutes 45 seconds, Priyanka was heard speaking normally, except when she said that she was feeling scared looking at the people who came to her aid.

While Bhavya advised her to wait at the toll-plaza, Priyanka refused by saying it would be awkward to stand at the toll-plaza. To which, Bhavya suggested to leave the scooter at the spot and come back home.

Priyanka told her sister Bhavya over the phone, “I started my bike, but they started shouting from behind saying madam your tyre is flat and you cannot go ahead. Though I thought that I can get it repaired at the bus stand, they did not allow me to go ahead. They made me get down and sent a boy to repair it. But he also returned saying all shops were closed.”

Bhavya said that Priyanka last spoke to her at 9.22 pm and her phone was switched off around 9.44 pm. After waiting for some time, they rushed to the toll-plaza to search for her.

Later they inquired at the shops, at the toll plaza and searched in the surrounding areas, and then lodged a police complaint when they could not locate her.

Priyanka’s badly-burnt body was discovered below the underpass by locals who then informed the police. The family members were then asked to come to the place where Priyanka’s body was found. They identified her with the help of a locket she was wearing. The body was handed over to her family after post-mortem.

Shamshabad’s DCP Prakash Reddy told reporters, “We are examining CCTV footage from the area. The police was informed at about 7:30 this morning about the burnt body. We suspect she was doused with kerosene and burnt.”

The police have formed 10 teams to track down those who may have trapped and killed Priyanka. Her vehicle has not yet been found and that could give important clues to the police.

The father of the deceased who is a government employee said, “Whoever has done this needs to be hanged to death.”

Meanwhile as per the latest update, according to the sources, the police have arrested four accused and reportedly are going to produce them before media in a short while.
