CHENNAI: The suspect in the recent St Thomas Mount Railway Station murder told CB-CID that he had been stalking the movements of M Sathya (20) for 10 days before pushing her in front of the oncoming train. “For three days before the murder, D Sathish (32) was waiting for her at the station. We have CCTV footage to confirm this and suspect it could be a planned murder,” said a CB-CID officer.

The Metropolitan Magistrates’ Court in Saidapet granted one-day remand of the suspect from the morning of October 27-28, the officer said. An inquest was held on October 27 and he was remanded in custody on Thursday.

“He said he had been in love with her for the past two years. When she was about to marry someone else, he decided to confront her on October 13,” the officer said. On October 13 afternoon, Sathish allegedly followed Sathya while she was waiting to board a train to Mambalam.

Sathish pushed Sathya in front of an oncoming train that was heading to Beach Station. She died on the spot and Sathish fled. Hours after Sathya’s death, his father P Manickam (47), a taxi driver, allegedly killed himself in his house. Special teams arrested the accused near Thoraipakkam on the same night. The next day, DGP C Sylendra Babu ordered the case to be transferred to CB-CID.
