A 26-year-old man, wanted in connection with the murder of a minor girl, was found dead in a village in Anakapalli district on Thursday, police said.

Anakapalli District Superintendent of Police K V Murali Krishna stated that Suresh's body was discovered around 7 am in KG Palem village.

'Suresh's body was found merely 700 meters from the place where he hacked the minor girl to death. We suspect that he had committed suicide by consuming a poison-laced drink,' Krishna informed PTI.

The Andhra Pradesh police had launched a manhunt for Suresh after he allegedly murdered the 14-year-old girl on Saturday evening.

According to sources, Suresh was in love with the girl and wanted to marry her. He had even promised to wait until she became a major, but her family refused the proposal.

The girl's family had lodged a complaint against Suresh in April, leading to a case being registered against him under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, and he was subsequently remanded.

However, he was released on bail and harbored a grudge against the girl for his imprisonment and the rejection of his marriage proposal.
