HYDERABAD (TIP): A young man from Hyderabad was stabbed to death allegedly by his roommate in the US.
Sankeerth, 25, was found murdered in his room in Austin, Texas late on Monday.
The police have detained one of his roommates, Sai Sandeep Goud, and are questioning him.
The two had fought, another roommate of Sankeerth told the police.
Sankeerth, who came to the US a little over two years ago, had started working in Austin three months ago after completing his Master of Science programme.
Sai Sandeep Goud reportedly checked into his room early this month through a consultancy. Two others shared the room.
Sankeerth’s father G Vijaykumar, a government employee, and mother Ramadevi, learnt about the death of their son yesterday.
Relatives say efforts are on to bring the body home by the weekend.
