We are saddened by the unfortunate incident that has led to the demise of our employee in Chennai: Infosys

Chennai: In a shocking incident, a woman employee of IT major Infosys was hacked to death at Nungambakkam railway station in Chennai on Friday morning.

The incident took place in front of a large number of people who were present at the station to board their respective trains but no one came to her rescue.

The victim has been identified as Swathi (24).

Around 6 am her father dropped her at the railway station and left. Preliminary inquiry revealed that a man approached Swathi and they were heard arguing with each other over some issue.

The man suddenly pulled out a chopper and hacked her to death in front of other commuters and walked away unchallenged.

Her family members lodged a complaint with the local police. No one has been arrested so far.

Meanwhile, Infosys issued a statement, which reads, "We are saddened by the unfortunate incident that has led to the demise of our employee in Chennai. We are working with the local authorities as they investigate the matter and will continue to provide our co-operation and support. Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with the family of the deceased. Infosys will provide all the necessary support to the family in their hour of grief."
