Sangareddy: As a young couple died within a gap of five days, their two minor children were orphaned at Ameerabad village of Nyalkal Mandal in Sangareddy district. The couple Beeradar Maruthi Rao (26) and Swapna Bai (24) used to run a tea stall for living at Ameerabad. Their children Vignesh (8) and Radhabai (6) were studying 3rd and 1st Classes respectively in a local school.

Swapna reportedly suffered from a prolonged kidney ailment and died on October 26 in the village. Since the death of Swapna, Maruthi has also taken ill and breathed his last on Sunday morning, exactly five days after his wife’s death.

Except for 10 gunta land, the couple had no property. Since the siblings of Maruthi Rao were eking out a livelihood by working as labourers, they are not in a position to look after the children.

Speaking to Telangana Today, Ameerabad Sarpanch Charanappa said the entire village was moved by the plight of the children. Saying that the children were too young, they believe that their parents would return to take care of them. The relatives of Maruthi Rao and Swapnai Bai have pooled some funds to perform the final rites of Rao. Meanwhile, the villagers are also trying to support the children. However, they urged the State government to support the children by taking up their responsibility.
