Rasila Raju murder: Infosys assures financial stability for kin

Pune: Infosys will ensure financial stability and consider ex-gratia payment to kin of a 23-year-old IT professional who was allegedly strangled to death by a security guard near her workstation in the company building at Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park on Sunday.

"In the tragic event of the demise of any employee under unfortunate circumstances, as happened in this instance with our employee, Rasila Raju, in Pune, Infosys ensures that the next of kin of the deceased employee does not suffer financially in any way," Infosys said in a statement issued Tuesday night.

Rasila Raju, who belonged to Kozhikode in Kerala, was found dead in a conference room on the ninth floor of the Infosys building in Pune on Sunday evening. The security guard has been arrested in connection with her murder.

The statement said that towards ensuring financial stability for the family, Infosys takes into account the statutory payments to be made as per the company policy.

"The company also considers ex-gratia payments based on the circumstances. Infosys also endeavors to make every effort at a suitable employment opportunity for the next of kin who qualify its recruitment criteria," it said.

Meanwhile, a senior office-bearer of the Pune Kerala Samaj has claimed Infosys has issued a letter to the family of Rasila, agreeing to pay "Rs one crore as ex-gratia" to her nominee.

Repeated calls to Infosys officials for reaction on the claims regarding issuance of the letter remained unanswered.

Rasila’s father Raju along with Malyali community members had visited Infosys officials on Pune campus on Monday night.

Her mortal remains were cremated Tuesday at her village in Kozhikode district in presence of a large number of people.

Police had Monday arrested Bhaben Saikia, a security guard from a private security services firm deployed at the Infosys campus, in connection with the murder.

According to police, Rasila had chided Saikia for "staring" at her and threatened to complain against him.
