Hyderabad: A flatmate stabbed 24-year-old Austin-based techie from Hyderabad to death at their apartment on Monday night.

The victim Gundam Sankirth and his attacker, Kurremula Sai Sandeep Goud (27) both hails from Hyderabad. Meanwhile Austin police has taken the accused into custody.

Sankirth’s father, G Vijay Kumar, said the family members got to know about the death from relatives on Tuesday morning that he was stabbed in his flat in Quarry Oaks apartment complex in North Austin. “We came to know about the death only later. We do not know what exactly happened. My son recently got a H1B visa. Our relatives in the US are going to hospital to find out more details,” a distraught Vijay Kumar, a supervisor of the government primary health centre at Bhoodan Pochampally in Nalgonda district, said.

Vijay’s family lives in Sultan Bazar in Hyderabad. However the cause behind the murder is not known yet. But as per Sankirth’s family members and friends Sandeep used to tease him about his frail body and used to advise him to go to gym to tone up muscles.

No one could provide much details about Sandeep. “We know that Sandeep is from Hyderabad and just 10 days ago he joined Sankirth in the flat through a consultant. He might also be a software engineer. We came to know that Sandeep assaulted Sankirth with a kitchen knife,” Sankirth’s relative Ajay said.

Sankirth completed his B Tech in information technology from MVSR Engineering College in Nadargul and went to the US two and half years ago to pursue MS in computer science. After finishing his course he took up an IT job in Austin. “Sankirth recently started working on a state government project,” his friend Praneeth, who was in the same flat with him when the assault happened, told TOI on phone from Austin. Praneeth was Sankirth’s former flatmate and had come from Dallas for the weekend.

The crime took place around 2.30 am (US time). “I was sleeping in the bedroom while Sankirth and Sandeep were chatting in another room. I woke up suddenly when I heard some noise and found Sankirth crying for help with a stab wound in his abdomen. A panic-stricken Sandeep was pacing around in the hall,” he recalled.

Amid cyclones, Andhra Police lends hand to disaster management

Policemen also took boats from the Fisheries Department to reach out to stranded people and also engaged the local revenue officials to supply food.




Cyclone Nisarga

Amaravati: In the recent heavy rains, floods and very severe cyclonic storm Nivar, Andhra Pradesh Police was on the forefront to save lives, feed stranded people and bring order amid the chaos, officers said.

The state witnessed torrential downpours in October and November powered by back-to-back cyclones, resulting in almost all the water bodies overflowing, causing much trouble to the common man and farmers alike.

Amidst these conditions, police personnel from constables to Superintendents of Police were working round the clock to help people.

“We had deployed almost 1,500 people from the district force for cyclone duties. We also got one platoon of the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF). We were deployed continuously for almost 72 hours,” Prakasam’s Superintendent of Police Siddharth Kaushal told IANS.

Amid incessant rain, policemen were deployed at all spots where the streams and water bodies were overflowing, at coastal villages, and to assist the district administration in evacuation.

“We assisted district administration in crowd control. At least 10 rescue operations were carried out in the district to save lives,” said Kaushal.

The SP said a special control and command post, equipped with radio communication, was set up in case mobile phones stopped working.

“Even till today (Monday) morning, we had deployed police in some places, preventing vehicles going in certain roads which were still under water,” he said.

Policemen also took boats from the Fisheries Department to reach out to stranded people and also engaged the local revenue officials to supply food.

In Nellore district, which bore the brunt of Nivar, along with Chittoor and Kadapa, three policemen carried a two-month-old baby to safety in Nellore town.

Policemen manned the Midatalavagu, a water body in spate near Kondapuram village to secure people and their movement.

They also monitored the rainwater inflows and outflows at Somasila dam where three gates were opened.

On National Highway 16 (NH 16), near Janardhan Reddy colony in Nellore, police supervised repairs to the road to prevent disruption of vehicle movement.

In similar fashion, police have also enabled the repair of a damaged bridge near Baghat Singh colony on NH 16 and also cleared many trees which were uprooted.

They also rescued two farmers from the middle of a raging water body after they were stuck there.

Not just the elements, police were also compelled to battle rumours.
