Earlier this month, Ramkumar after confessing that he killed the Infosys engineer, took a U-turn saying that he did not commit the crime.
“I am innocent. I am being framed in the case a I belong to a low caste and have a poor family background,” he had said in a statement.

He is being treated in the Government Royapettah Hospital in Chennai for the injuries in his neck.
