Chennai: Woman Infosys employee hacked to death at railway station

A 24-year-old woman employee of Infosys was hacked to death at Chennai’s Nungambakkam railway station at 6.30 am on Friday. S Swathi was on her way to work at Mahindra City, about 60 km south of Chennai.

She was waiting to board a train when a young man attacked her with a sickle, eyewitnesses said.

They had heated arguments for a few minutes, and just after that he took out a sickle from his bag and attacked her multiple times.

Then Swathi fell on the ground and was bleeding profusely.

Cops arrived on the spot later and it took them almost two hours to remove her body from the spot.

Police are clueless as the suburban station, though one of the busiest on Beach-Tambaram route, is not under CCTV surveillance.

They suspect someone related to Swathi as the murderer.

This is the second incident of a broad daylight attack in Chennai this week.

Meanwhile, Infosys issued a statement, which reads, "We are saddened by the unfortunate incident that has led to the demise of our employee in Chennai. Infosys will provide all the necessary support to the family in their hour of grief".
