A day after confessing that he killed Infosys engineer S. Swathi, P. Ramkumar on Tuesday does a u-turn in the sensational murder case and said that he did not commit the crime.
Ramkumar said, “I am innocent. I am being framed in the case a I belong to a low caste and have a poor family background.”
Earlier, Ram Kumar had attempted suicide by slashing his throat with a blade when the police tried to arrest him.
He is being treated in the Government Royapettah Hospital in Chennai for the injuries in his neck.
On Monday, his confession statement was recorded at the hospital only.
In the statement, Ramkumar had said that it was an insulting remark on his personal appearance that provoked him to murder Swathi.
