Hyderabad: Sirisha, the beautician who committed suicide on June 13 last, “had not been sexually assaulted”, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Venkateshwar Rao, announced on Friday. The assertion follows receipt of the forensic report, which went into the cause of the beautician’s death.
The DCP, quoting the report, disclosed that the stains on Sirisha’s dress were not related to the sexual assault “but were only food stains”.
The police had sent the beautician’s viscera samples to the Forensic Department suspecting sexual assault on her. She had been in the company of Siddipet’s Kuknoorpally Sub Inspector Prabhakar Reddy, and Accused Number 1 and 2, Sravan and Rajeev respectively, on the eve of her alleged suicide.

The DCP stated they have technical pieces of evidence that Sirisha committed suicide, which would be submitted to the court.
He offered to clarify any doubts regarding her death, asserting that the police will see to it that those responsible for her death are punished.
