The Banjara Hills police in Hyderabad, presently investigating the death of beautician Sirisha said on Friday that forensic analysis confirmed that she was not raped.

The Times of India reported that the police received analysis from the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) even as the final post-mortem report from Osmania General Hospital (OGH) also reached them on Thursday night.

The OGH report confirmed that Sirisha had consumed alcohol before her death, while the FSL report said that she was not raped.

“The FSL report stated that there was no semen or spermatozoa found during the analysis of vaginal smears and the clothes of the victim. This means the victim was not raped," West Zone DCP A Venkateswara Rao told TOI.

Vijaya Lakshmi alias Sirisha, had killed herself in Hyderabad in June, even as Kuknoorpally SI Prabhakar Reddy shot himself with his service revolver, later that same day.

Sirisha hung herself at her work place, a photo studio in the city's Sheikhpet area. The two main accused in the case are Rajeev Kumar, the owner of the studio, and B Sravan.

Sirisha, along with Rajeev and Sravan, had gone to meet the Kuknoorpally SI at his police quarters to 'settle' a personal dispute.

After all four of them were inebriated, it was here that the SI allegedly tried to sexually assault Sirisha, which the police suspect, led her to take the extreme step.

Sirisha had come in contact with Rajeev around four years ago, and the duo were suspected to be having a physical relationship.

The police had earlier said that the autopsy report confirmed that Sirisha died due to hanging, while they suspect that the SI took the extreme step fearing police investigations and action against him.

Sravan and Rajeev are presently in remand, and with all the forensic evidence in their possession, the police are expected to file a charge sheet against them soon.
