Motkuru, Tungaturthi: In a cold-blooded act, a youth brutally killed his girlfriend, and married another woman the very next day. Twenty five year-old Narender, alias Nandu, of Bujilapur in Motkuru mandal of Yadadri Bhuvanagiri district, had been in a relationship with Bhargavi. While the accused was an ambulance driver at a local nursing home in Atmakur, the victim had been working there as a receptionist.

Narender befriended Bhargavi and later, got into a relationship with her. Meanwhile, Narender agreed to marry a girl from a village in Gundala mandal of Jangaon district scheduled to have been solemnized on Sunday last.

When questioned by Bhargavi on the eve of his marriage, Narender took her to a well on his farm, on the pretext of clarifying everything to her. He then used a boulder to kill her. The accused thereafter buried the body after digging a pit there.

Narender went ahead with his wedding as scheduled. On learning about the event and concerned about Bhargavi's disappearance, her father and other relatives confronted the groom on Bhargavi's whereabouts.

After Bhargavi's father lodged a complaint on her disappearance with the Atmakur police on Monday, Narender was taken into custody as the prime suspect. During the course of interrogation, the accused admitted to have committed the murder and led the police to the scene of murder. The cops exhumed the body and sent it for post-mortem to a local hospital in the Ramannapet area.

Narender had earlier married his first cousin from Keesara near Hyderabad, whom he divorced after four years.
