Hyderabad: Banjara Hills police on Friday received the forensic report which confirmed that makeup artist Sirisha was not sexually assaulted.
It may be recalled here that, Sirisha was found hanging at her workplace in the wee hours of June 13 after she along with her employer Rajeev and friend Sravan returned from Kukunoorpally after meeting the sub-inspector P Prabhakar Reddy.
A day later, Prabhakar Reddy shot himself to death in his residential quarters.
The police said that the sub-inspector resorted to the extreme step fearing criminal proceedings for allegedly misbehaving with Sirisha. The trio had gone to Kukunoorpally to find a solution to the triangular love affair Rajeev had with Sirisha and another woman Tejaswini but the visit ended on a tragic note.
As the police found evidence of sexual assault on Sirisha, they collected vaginal swabs and viscera samples and sent them to forensic laboratory for thorough examination.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, West Zone, A Venkateswara Rao, said, “Forensic report confirms that Sirisha was not sexually assaulted. However, we have evidence to prove that Prabhakar Reddy attempted to sexually assault her.
The forensic report also confirmed that she was drunk.” Medical experts confirmed that Sirisha committed suicide by hanging herself, the DCP said and added that the stains on her clothes were not of sexual assault but remnants of food she consumed. “We are ready to clarify the doubts raised over Sirisha’s death and will submit the technical evidence in the court,” the DCP said.
He exuded confidence that the accused would be punished. Meanwhile, police opposed the bail applications filed by V Rajeev Kumar and B Sravan Kumar, both arrested for Sirisha’s suicide.The prosecution told the court that the investigation was still under progress and the accused might hamper probe or tamper with the evidence if released on bail. Consequently, the court posted the case for further proceedings to July 11.
