The killing took place in their residential area in Wadi-e-Omer locality Shaheen Nagar and family members informed the police about the two unknown assailants.

Pawan belonged to a Scheduled Tribe community and had dropped out of his intermediate education course during the coronavirus pandemic.

An official said the victim and the accused knew each other. While reports said the victim was in a relationship with a girl and her family, who belonged to a different community, were against it, the police refused to confirm it as the motive for the murder.

When contacted, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Maheshwaram) Anjaiah said special teams have been formed and police are on the lookout for the two suspects.

Balapur police have registered a case against two unknown persons and started investigation. It has become known that the two suspects have been detained and remanded in custody. The motive behind the murder is under investigation.

A case under section 302 (murder), 506 (criminal intimidation) and relevant sections of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, has been registered at the Balapur police station.
