Andhra Students Murder: $5,000 reward for info

WASHINGTON/BATON ROUGE: Police has offered a USD 5,000 reward for credible information about the killers of two Indian doctoral students at Louisiana State University, as tips poured in after the release of sketches of two suspects.

Earlier on Thursday, the police released the sketches of two men wanted for questioning in the murder of two Indian students in the university campus, after meeting the Indian diplomats.

The sketches were made from descriptions given by witnesses who saw two people around the apartment. They were seen hurriedly leaving the apartment complex in a car with one or two other people, police said, adding the sketches were available for download at http://www.lsu.edu/pa/photos .

According to the police, "All indications so far are that the suspects were looking for someone to rob when they killed the two victims".

One of the men, believed to have been the driver of the car, was a black male estimated to be in his 20's, they said.

"His hair was done in twists in rows. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt," police said.

The second man, wearing a white long sleeve shirt with a high collar and dark jeans, is also allegedly a black male in his 20's, possibly even over 30, 5'8"-5'10" tall, with a muscular build and a receding hairline, they said.

They are believed to have left in an older model, light-coloured Oldsmobile Alero.

It is believed that one of the victims was spotted arriving at the apartment complex and was followed to the other victim's apartment, where both men were killed.

Police have not yet released the descriptions of other two men involved in the crime.

The suspects were seen on the complex property at 9:00 pm on the night of December 13th, and may have been in the general area or on property even earlier.

Kiran Kumar Allam (33) and Chandrasekhar Reddy Komma (31), both resident of Andhra Pradesh, were shot dead on Thursday last at the Edward Gay Apartments on the edge of the LSU campus. They were pursuing doctoral degrees at LSU and the apartment belonged to Allam.
