An Indian space centre scientist was allegedly murdered at his apartment by his gay sex partner.

An investigation revealed that the suspect had been extorting money from the victim in return for sexual favours.

The victim was identified as 56-year-old Suresh Kumar, a technician at the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Hyderabad. It is one of the centres of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

His body was found at his apartment on October 1, 2019.

Suresh had lived in Hyderabad for 20 years. He was married but lived alone in his apartment.

His wife used to live with him but she was transferred to Chennai in 2005 for work. Suresh’s son lives in the United States while their daughter lives in Delhi.

An investigation into the case had been led by three teams who collected technical and forensic evidence.

They discovered that 39-year-old Janagama Srinivas had allegedly murdered Suresh. Srinivas worked at a private pathology company as a lab technician.

Hyderabad City Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar confirmed that the suspect was arrested in connection with the murder of Suresh.

Officers had suspected that Srinivas was involved especially when apartment security told them that he regularly visited Suresh’s flat.

A police officer said: “We are probing the case based on the call data of Suresh’s mobile.

“Hours after Suresh arrived in the city from Ahmedabad, he talked with someone known to him. We are also scanning the CCTV of the apartment to probe the case.”

According to the investigation, Suresh had become lonely and his financial situation had started to go downhill.

Srinivas took advantage of this and allegedly befriended him by claiming that he needed to collect some blood.

The suspect was eventually able to seduce the Indian space centre scientist and the two became lovers.

However, as Srinivas had intended to take advantage of Suresh, he demanded money from him in return for sex.

On one occasion, Srinivas did not receive the expected amount of money he had demanded. He allegedly then came up with a plan to murder Suresh.

On September 30, 2019, Srinivas went to Suresh’s apartment armed with a knife.

After the two had sex, an argument over money broke out. Amidst the row, Srinivas stabbed Suresh to death.

The death came to light when the cleaner found that the apartment was locked. Later, Suresh’s wife and colleagues tried contacting him but were unsuccessful.

Concerned neighbours alerted the police and they broke down the door. They found Suresh’s body with serious head injuries.

India Today reported that the victim’s body was sent for a post-mortem. Janagama Srinivas was arrested but officers are investigating to find out if he was responsible for the scientist’s death.
