The Chennai police on Friday released the CCTV footage of the suspect in the Infosys employee murder case , where a 24-year old girl Swathi was stabbed to death by an unidentified assailant.
A special probe team was formed to arrest the accused at the earliest amid severe criticism from the daily commuters about the deteriorating law and order situation in the area.
The incident occurred around 6 am on Friday at the Nungambakkam railway station when Swathi, a resident of Choolaimedu near the station, was waiting to board a suburban train to reach her office.
On Saturday, the local police claimed that they have all the leads and will soon arrest the killer.
Infosys described the incident as “unfortunate” and said it was cooperating with investigating officials.
“We are saddened by the unfortunate incident that has led to the demise of our employee in Chennai. We are working with the local authorities as they investigate the matter and will continue to provide our co-operation and support,” it said in a statement.
“Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with the family of the deceased. Infosys will provide all the necessary support to the family in their hour of grief,” it further said.
The victim was employed with Infosys’ branch at Mahindra World City at Singaperumalkoil on the city outskirts.
