A young Boy from Hyderabad was stabbed to death by his roommate in Texas, US.
Sankeerth, 25, was found murdered in his Room on Monday. The police have detained one of his roommates, Sai Sandeep Goud, and are questioning him.
Sai Sandeep Goud reportedly checked into his room early this month through a consultancy. Two others shared the room. Sankeerth, who came to the US a little over two years ago, had started working in Austin three months ago after completing his Master of Science programme.
Praneeth, an eyewitness and a roommate, who spoke to the victim’s family, said Sandeep was drunk when he attacked Sankeerth. He said he was sleeping in another room when he heard the scuffle and soon found Sankeerth lying in a pool of blood.
“He was a peaceful man. We do not know why he was attacked,” added Srikanth, Sankeerth’s cousin. Sankeerth was also in constant touch with his parents. “He used to regularly Skype but he never mentioned a dispute with his roommate,” A. Venkat Rao, another cousin, said.
Sankeerth’s parents, learned about the death of their son yesterday. Relatives say efforts are on to bring the body home by the weekend.
