Hyderabad: Police solved the murder mystery of 24-year-old insurance firm employee and arrested three persons. The victim was identified as Ratnesh Kumar Mishra, 24, from Mallapur. Ratnesh, an employee of United Health Group at Raheja Mind Space, did not return home from office on April 25.

During the course of investigation, police came to know that Ratnesh had a girlfriend, Revathi. On interrogation, police nabbed — T Vinod and G Akshay Kumar — the duo confessed to have lured Ratnesh to an isolated place at Kawkoor on the outskirts to consume liquor and then murdered him by throwing rocks on his head.

Vinod and Akshay said they were friends of Revathi’s brother Neelakash. “The murder was committed on the directions of Neelakash and Revathi,” Nacharam inspector S Ashok Kumar said.

Revathi confessed to police that she along with her brother hatched a plan to kill Ratnesh as he refused to marry her.
