Hulimavu police have questioned a female staffer of Infosys in connection with the sensational Priyanka murder case to ascertain if she had any affair with Priyanka’s husband Sathish Gupta or had any role in the murder.
The woman is said to have exchanged a few personal e-mails and text messages with her colleague Sathish, an HR executive at Infosys, before he allegedly killed Priyanka. He has been arrested in connection with the murder and is presently in police custody.
After questioning the woman, police said, “She is an unmarried girl who seems to be have no role in Priyanka’s killing. We are yet to ascertain whether she had any affair with Sathish. She has told us that she has a steady boy friend.”
When Bangalore Mirror called the woman staffer of Infosys, she said, “I know Sathish because he was a colleague. He worked for the HR department and I worked in another department. Since, he is an HR guy, I interacted with him often. Other than that, I do not have any association with him.”
Meanwhile, police investigation into Priyanka’s murder is coming to an end. They have recorded the statements of shop owners from whom Sathish purchased the knife and nylon rope he used to strangle Priyanka and slash her throat.
Policemen have also questioned Sathish’s parents and a few other relatives in a sustained manner to find out whether they helped him execute the crime.
