In a much shocking incident, a Hyderabadi student Sankeerth, was stabbed to death by his flatmate Sai Sandeep Goud in Austin, Texas on Monday (July 18) midnight. Sankeerth. 25, from Kachiguda went to the USA two years ago on F1 visa and recently got an H1B visa which he had received through a draw system.
Austin Police officers responded to a disturbance at the apartment complex. Upon arrival, officers encountered two men attempting to load a male victim into a car. It appeared the male victim suffered from a stab wound to his abdomen. Students said that Goud, 27, checked into the Sankeerth room at Colonial Village at Quarry Oaks, a fortnight ago after a consultancy helped him get an accommodation there.
Austin Police took Sai Sandeep into custody on the charges of killing Sankeerth. Prima facie report says Sankeerth was stabbed to death by his roommate with a knife after a clash erupted between the duo. Sandeep has been booked into Travis County Jail for Murder – 1st Degree Felony. An autopsy by the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office is pending. The parents of the deceased have been informed about the death of their son.
