Yadadri-Bhongir: Veeramma, mother of Pallakonda Raju who committed suicide after the rape and murder a minor girl in Hyderabad, on Thursday alleged that police killed her son and projected it as suicide.
Soon after news of Raju’s suicide reached the family, his relatives reached his sister’s house at Peddagada in Addgudur of Yadadri-Bhongir district.
Raju’s wife Mounika alleged that police killed her husband after taking him to custody. The family has no money even to go and see the body of her husband, she said, and urged the police to hand over the body to his family. After her husband picked up a quarrel with his mother, Mounika too left the house at Singareni Colony some months ago. Their house at Singareni Colony was also damaged by the locals, she alleged, and wondered how she could manage with a month-old baby.
Raju’s sister Anitha said the government had done justice to the victim’s family by punishing Raju, and now it should also do justice to the family of Raju who died.
Speaking to the media at Jalalpuram in Tirumalgiri mandal, Suryapet district, Raju’s mother-in-law Yadamma said Raju came to her house about 15 days before the Rakhi festival. During an argument, Raju tried to throttle her but her son saved her. Later, Raju left the house and never returned again.
She said Raju had no right to live after committing the heinous act. No woman should face the fate her daughter was going through, she said, adding that the two got married two years ago.
