Police, who identified the deceased as Anitha, said there were injuries to her face and her six-sovereign gold chain, earrings and bangles were missing.
Anitha, a spinster who worked at a college in Enathur, had been living with her sister Shanmugakani and her family at Angalaparameshwari Nagar for the past 15 years. Around 11pm on Saturday, she finished her dinner and went to her first floor room. About 15 minutes later, the family members heard an unusual noise from upstairs and her sister received a call on her mobile phone from Anitha saying someone was hiding in the room.
Her sister’s husband and son rushed there but found the door locked. When repeated knocks didn’t elicit a response, they broke open the back door and found her on the bed with injuries to the face and neck. She was rushed to a private hospital where she was declared brought dead. Police sent the body for postmortem to a government hospital. The Kancheepuram Taluk police registered a case of suspicious death. Police, who found a torn shirt pocket of a man in the room, suspect it belongs to an outsider. They are collecting CCTV camera footage areas adjoining the house.
