In an alarming incident that has surfaced from Mangalagiri, one of the towns in the capital region of Amaravati, a woman in her late 20s was found murdered on Monday. According to police, two unidentified men allegedly attacked the woman and her boyfriend at an isolated place near the international cricket stadium in Mangalagiri limits.
According to police, 27-year-old Angadi Jyothi and 29-year-old Chinchi Srinivas belonged to Tadepalli's Mahanadu. Police sources said that both of them were in the vicinity of the international stadium to spend some time on Monday evening when they were attacked.
