A native of Hanamakonda in Telangana, Thirumalagiri Swathi was found dead under suspicious circumstances in London.

Following the death, her parents and relatives accused her husband Sripathi Rajesh, a techie, and her in-laws S Srinivas and Vijaya of murdering her.

According to reports, Swathi's relatives staged a protest in front of Rajesh's house in Machli Bazar in Hanamkonda.

The relatives said that Swathi and Rajesh got married on November 4, 2016, and alleged that Rs 35 lakh was given as dowry during the time of wedding.

Rajesh, who was working in Singapore at the time, later moved to London for employment. 

Speaking to media persons, Swathi’s parents claimed that their daughter would call and complain that she was being harassed every day, as her in-laws were demanding additional dowry. 

The family also said that Swathi spoke to her parents on October 2, and said that she wanted to return home from London.

However, just two days later Swathi's husband called and said that she had fallen into the sea, and that she was admitted in the hospital.

He called again later that night, to inform them that she had died.

In February this year, a Warangal native, Vamshi Reddy Mamidala, was shot dead by an alleged drug addict in Milpitas, California, in the garage of his apartment building.

A pall of gloom descended on Vangapahad village as family members, relatives and villagers gathered to bid a tearful adieu to the Indian software engineer, once his body was brought back via Hyderabad.

The drug addict was trying to flee after robbing a woman, and the 27-year-old had reportedly tried to stop him.

Police later arrested the accused, identified as 30-year-old Stuart Baronngaue.
