Pune: Deepika Roy cant believe her brother is no more. He was killed by robbers in Wagholi trying to foil their robbery attempt. Her parents no longer want her to live in Pune.
A senior software engineer by profession, Deepika, whose brother Abhishek was murdered, said that her parents are worried about rising incidents of techies’ murders in the city.
Speaking from Bhopal, where she travelled with her brother’s remains, she said, “My parents want me to quit my job in Pune and stay at home in Bhopal even though there are no opportunities in software industries here. They are scared as I am their only child now, I feel helpless.”
Roy said that around 6am on Sunday, she received a call from her brother’s roommate Siddharth Jain to tell her about the incident. “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, my brother was so excited about his job. Just a day before he told me that he had bought formal clothes. He even told me to wake him up early as he didn’t want to get late. The next day, I was waiting to take his dead body home after his autopsy. It was unreal,” she said.
Her mother believes that his murder is a result of a minor tiff and not a foiled robbery fall-out.
“Ten days ago, Abhishek called my mother complaining about unidentified persons picking up a fight over a smoking issue. It had turned violent and there was exchange of abusive language. My brother was an introvert and didn’t fight much. They had started asking about his whereabouts. My mother thinks that my brothers murder is related to this incident” she said.
Cops are yet trace the culprits. Chandrakant Jadhav, Inspector in-charge of Lonikand police station said, “We will take a statement from his parents and sister to get some clues but we still assume this murder is a result of the robbery fall-out.”
Deceased mechanical engineer Abhishek Roy (25) was living with his two roommates at Golden society in Wagholi Kesnand road. He was stabbed to death by two persons on Sunday.
