    A priest from Hyderabad’s Maisamma temple was arrested on Friday for the murder of a 30-year-old woman who he was having an affair with. Ayyagari Venkata Sura Sai Krishna was produced before a magistrate on Saturday and remanded to judicial custody. The accused, who was married and had two children, killed the woman as she was pregnant with his child and pressuring him to marry her. The incident came to light on Friday, almost a week after the murder occurred. Police found that the priest killed the woman in Sultanpalli and dumped her body in a manhole in Saroornagar area.

    The accused took Apsara to Sultanpalli on June 3, where he killed her by smashing her head with a boulder. He then bundled her body in a bag, kept it in the car and brought it back to Saroornagar, where he dumped it in a manhole behind the temple. The accused later lodged a complaint with Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) police station that his relative Apsara was missing since June 3 after he had dropped her at Shamshabad. Police registered a case and took up investigation.

The body was retrieved from the manhole and sent for autopsy. The accused has been shifted to Cherlapally Jail after being remanded to judicial custody.
