Telangana murder case: Mutton soup uncovers murder plot of M Sudhakar Reddy

Taking their cue from Telugu movie "Evadu" in which actor Allu Arjun undergoes plastic surgery to resemble another character in the film played by Ram Charan Tej (which itself is a spinoff of Hollywood film "Face Off"), a 27-year-old married woman along with her alleged paramour killed her husband.

Police in Telangana revealed the shocking facts unearthed during the investigations of the chilling crime in Nagarkurnool town.

The woman, M Swathi, 27, along with her paramour Rajesh, a physiotherapist, had murdered her husband M Sudhakar Reddy, 32, of Nagarkurnool almost two weeks ago and dumped the body in a forest.

Officers took Rajesh's finger prints and compared them with details they held for for Sudhakar - and on receiving the results, immediately arrested Swathi.

According to the police, Sudhakar's relatives got suspicious of Rajesh's behaviour when he refused to have mutton soup being served to the patients.

Sudhakar's shocked family, believing their son was still alive, moved Rajesh to a hospital in Hyderabad and lodged a complaint to police about the apparent "gang attack". A woman confessed to murdering her husband with her lover and ditching his body in a forest in the Indian state of Telangana.


Rajesh, meanwhile, pretended to be Reddy and only spoke with the family in writing, fearing they would recognize his voice. The treatment was underway and when it appeared that Swathi and Rajesh would get away with the murder, the story took a dramatic turn.

The deluded wife then poured acid on her lover's face and reportedly planned to tell neighbors her hubby's looks had simply changed after reconstructive plastic surgery.

Police arrested Swati on Sunday. Later, she called up her relatives and told them that unidentified persons entered the house and threw petrol on her husband. As the murder plot unfolded, on November 27, when Sudhakar was in sleep, Rajesh and Swathi gave him an anaesthetic injection following which he lost consciousness. Sudhakar's brother lodged a complaint with the police and rushed him to a corporate hospital in Hyderabad for treatment. He then stopped talking to them and started communicating with signs.

A police officer said Rajesh will be taken into custody after discharge from the hospital.

As the burns started healing, Sudhakar Reddy's family members suspected the injured man was actually Sudhakar.
