Chennai: S. Swathi, who was killed at the Nungambakkam Railway Station on Friday, was a soft-spoken person, according to her kith and kin.
Having completed B.E. in Computer Science from Dhanalakshmi College of Engineering, Sriperumpudur in neighbouring Kancheepuram district, in 2014, she did a course in Oracle in Anna University the same year. She was placed in Infosys and underwent training in Mysuru until November 2014. She joined the company as a System Engineer in December 2014 and was working in the same facility located in Mahindra World City, Chengelpet, until Friday morning.
She is the younger daughter of Santhana Gopalakrishnan who retired from ESIC recently. Swathi was not married while her elder sister is married. Her friend Sidhu, who was waiting at the morgue, said that he had got acquainted with her during the course at the varsity. "She is good-natured girl, and a friendly one.
She was always nice to everyone. She would not interact much with strangers," he said. He was upset that her body was kept in the railway station as an exhibit for at least three hours. Swathi's mobile phone is believed to have been taken away by the assailant while her jewels remained intact on her body.
