Anakapalli: A 26-year-old man accused of murdering a minor girl in Anakapalli district has allegedly died by suicide.

Suresh was found lying on the outskirts of Koppugundupalem in Rambilli mandal.

The body has been shifted for autopsy and there is no sign of injuries on the body. Police are yet to reveal how he killed himself.

According to the Anakapalli District Superintendent of Police K V Murali Krishna, Suresh’s body was found merely 700 metres from the place where he hacked the minor girl to death. Police suspect that he had died by suicide by consuming a poison laced drink.

On July 6, a 14-year-old class IX student was hacked to death at KG Palem village in Rambilli Mandal. As many as 12 police teams were formed to arrest B Suresh, a driver by profession.

Police had also announced a reward of Rs 50,000 for info about the accused.

Suresh who was 'fanatically in love' with the girl murdered the minor girl on Saturday around 6 pm. On July 6, Suresh barged into the victim’s house and slit her throat. According to sources, Suresh wanted to marry the girl and even promised that he would wait until she turned a major, but her family refused this proposal.

Incidentally, the girl's family lodged a complaint with police against Suresh in April, which also resulted in his remand. He was booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

However, he came out of prison on bail and nursed a grudge against the girl that she was responsible for his imprisonment and also for rejecting his proposal.
