Sasikala Murder: Husband Allowed to Attend the Funeral in India
New Jersey: The husband of Sasikala, who was murdered along with her six-year-old son in New Jersey last week, is given permission by the US to go to India for the funeral.
Hanumantha Rao was initially not allowed to leave the country, and the police even confiscated his passport.
Rao reportedly found both mother and son dead in a pool after he returned from work. He contacted police and informed them. He had a strong alibi to support his claim, according to reports.
Post-mortems were performed on both the bodies and the remains were sent to India.
Rao’s movements are “not restricted in any way by the criminal justice system,” according to Joel Bewley, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s spokesperson, reported by a local news channel. He hasn’t been charged with anything, according to the channel.
According to NDTV reports, the spokesperson told the channel that he wouldn’t comment on whether Rao is a suspect, as they (his office) are not allowed to talk about any past, present and future suspects.
Rao’s in-laws back in India claimed in a press conference that he was behind the murder. They alleged that Rao had an illegal affair with another woman, which the spokesperson reportedly confirmed.
