NRI To Be Hanged In The US On February 23rd

The stage is set for the execution of an Indian NRI living in the US on February 23rd. Raghunandan Yandamuri, 32, was given death penalty for killing a 10-month-old baby, Sanvi and her 61-year-old grandmother, Sathyavathi in 2014. Raghunandan kidnapped the baby for ransom and later killed her.
Raghunandan, who is a native of Vishakhapatnam, completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and worked in the US on H-1B visa. He made friends with a young couple Veena Prasad Reddy and Latha, who were living in Pennsylvania, US. The couple belonged to Hanumanthupadu Village, Prakash district.
After killing Sanvi, and Sathyavathi cruelly, Raghunandan took part in the search for the missing baby and the grandmother. He planned the murder so carefully, leaving no clue for the investigation agencies. The police arrested him after a letter demanding the ransom, written by him was found. The Judicial high court in Pennsylvania had given the death penalty to Raghunandan for the heinous crime he has committed. The execution is likely to take place by injecting a series of injections, consisting of a sleep-inducer, and followed by a lethal injection, into the criminal’s body. The death would be painless, as the criminal will be losing his consciousness after the first injection.
But the chances of his execution are slim, given the rules set by the Governor of Pennsylvania, and the past history. The state has not seen any executions in the last 20 years.
