It is believed that it was her day off but Ms Raju was working on a project and two of her teammates were online with her from the Bengaluru office. She had been working since 3 pm and had been constantly in touch with her colleagues, the police say.

In the evening, her supervisor in Bengaluru tried to call her but reportedly got no response. Around 10 pm, he called security and asked the guard to check on the engineer, who was found dead.

This is the second murder of a techie in Pune in two months. Last month, 23-year-old Antara Das, an employee of Capgemini, was chased and repeatedly stabbed barely half a km from her office. Her former colleague and friend, based in Bengaluru, was arrested for the murder. Infosys expressed shock and said it is providing all possible help to the police.
