Rasila Raju OP, an engineer with the software major Infosys was found dead in the conference room around 8 pm on Sunday. Police said she had an injury on her face and strangulation marks on the neck. Cops said that a computer cable was used to murder her. “She was found dead on the ninth floor of the building in the conference room. Primary probe suggests that she has been strangulated with a cable of the computer. We have been told that she was to make a phone call to her colleagues based in Bengaluru on a project. But after she did not answer the call, the firm’s security officers were informed and when they went to check on her, they found her lying dead,” police said.

A senior police officer said that footage from the security cameras installed on the company premises gave them important clues about the sequence of events leading to the murder. Saikia was being brought to Pune for further interrogation, the officer added.

Police said that though they have information about the motive behind the murder, details would be disclosed only after a detailed probe into the case. Police officials also said they would look into whether all the requisite verifications were done before hiring Saikia by the agency which provides security to the Infosys campus in Pune.

In the last week of December last year, Antara Das, a 23-year-old software engineer with Capgemini, was hacked to death a few metres away from her company campus in Talawade. Pune rural police had later arrested her friend from Bangalore who was allegedly troubling her over phone.
