A senior police officer told media persons that,Akshatha’s mother Rekha had come to Chandrakanth’s restaurant on January 22 to enquire about her daughter as she had not been in contact for two weeks. Chandrakanth told her that she left the city a few days ago after collecting `50,000 from him and was not even responding to his phone calls. This made Rekha suspicious and she filed a missing person’s case with the police. Following this, police tracked her phone location which showed it was somewhere in north India.”The police also became suspicious of Chandrakanth’s behaviour.After some days, we took him into police custody. When he was grilled, he confessed that he had smothered Akshatha in his flat and then asked his employee Singh to dispose of the body. Singh had loaded the body in a car late at night and took it to a forest at Kamanadoddi village near Hosur on the Tamil Nadu border and set it on fire. He then left the city for his native Delhi and carried Akshatha’s mobile phone along with him. But he was not answering the phone calls,” the officer added. Following Chandrakanth’s confession, police arrested Rajvinder Singh.During interrogation,Chandrakanth said he used to suspect her fidelity which led to frequent quarrels between them.
