A week after Infosys software engineer S Swathi hacked to death at the Nungambakkam railway station in Chennai, the police late on Friday has arrested her suspected killer from Tirunelveli in southern Tamil Nadu.

The accused Ramkumar, a 22-year-old engineering graduate from Meenakshipuram in Tirunelveli, slit his throat with a sharp object when the police surrounded him. The accused sustained 60 per cent injury and was rushed to the Government Hospital in Tenkasi where he was given first aid. Doctors said the injury was not serious. 

On last Friday, Swathi was waiting at platform number 2 of the railway station to board a train to work, when the suspect hacked her to death from behind.

The arrest ended Chennai’s biggest manhunt in recent years that began exactly a week ago. Police indicated that the accused had stayed for a few months in Choolaimedu, Chennai, where Swathi lived with her parents.
