Hyderabad: The sleuths of the Commissioner's Task Force, North Zone, along with the Rachakonda Police apprehended a most wanted serial killer, Maina Ramulu, and found two new cases of murder that are said to be committed by him. One case was under the Mulugu PS, Siddipet Commissionerate and the other was under the Ghatkesar PS, Rachakonda Commissionerate.

Maina Ramulu, 45, who was a stone cutter by profession, was previously arrested in 21 cases in which 16 were murder for gain cases, four property cases, and had also escaped from police custody once. He was given life sentence but was released from jail after appealing to the High Court.

The search for Maina Ramulu began when Ananthaiah, from Venkatagiri, Jubilee Hills, filed a complaint with the police that his wife, Kavala Venkatamma, had gone missing. Venkatamma's body was later found near a railway track at Ankushapur village, under the limits of Ghatkesar Police station. The police managed to arrest Ramulu in connection with the case and also in the other case where the victim is yet to be identified.

It is said that Ramulu had taken to killing women as a revenge after his wife eloped soon after marriage. He would identify lone women and invite them to spend time with him. Afterwards he would get them into an inebriated state through alcohol, gratify himself sexually, and murder them by strangling them or hitting them with a boulder. He would rob them of their valuable items and make his escape.

The accused was handed over to the SHO, Ghatkesar PS for further investigation.
