The accused approached the woman saying they were tourist guides and will show her the places. They raped and killed her after taking her to the forests. The accused were charged for murder, rape, use of drugs and destruction of evidence.

The case was proved by a team led by Thiruvananthapuram range IG Manoj Abraham. The investigating officers will be felicitated by the DGP today.
