Vizianagaram: Man murders friend for calling, harassing his girlfriend

Vizianagaram: The Vizianagaram police solved the murder of the 19-year-old student, Thorthu Naveen, who was found dead near the railway tracks in Dwarapudi locality under One-Town police station limits on 25 October in Vizianagaram town.

The police arrested Naveen's friend and neighbour Bodduru Brahmaji alias Balu (25) on charges of killing Naveen. The police said Naveen, a resident of KL Puram in Vizianagaram, was a second-year BSc student. The accused, Balu, and Naveen were good friends. Balu reportedly killed Naveen for talking and sending messages to his girlfriend.

Vizianagaram DSP T. Trinadh and inspector of One-Town police station B. Venkata Rao said Naveen left his home with firecrackers on Diwali (24 October) but he didn't return home.

Balu told a few people that Naveen went missing after he was hit by a train when he was busy talking on his mobile phone while walking near the railway tracks. Naveen's family members and relatives searched for him near the railway tracks and found Naveen's body.

Based on the injuries on his body, Naveen's family alerted the police, who confirmed that Naveen was murdered.

The police started suspecting Balu's role in the murder after he absconded from KL Puram on 25 October. "We formed a team and nabbed Balu, who confessed to the crime," said inspector Venkata Rao.

Balu confessed that his girlfriend, also a resident of KL Puram, used to receive calls and messages from Naveen. Though she had blocked Naveen's phone number and social media accounts, he would call her and send messages from new mobile numbers. Despite repeated warnings, Naveen continued to send messages and call her which made Balu unhappy. Fed up with Naveen's attitude, Balu decided to kill him.

On Diwali, Naveen and Balu drank alcohol in the afternoon. At night, the two went to the Dwarapudi locality where Balu got into a heated argument with Naveen for harassing his girlfriend. The argument led to a fight between the two and Balu beat Naveen to death with a log, the police said.
