KADAPA: MRPS president Manda Krishna Madiga’s offer of Rs. 5 lakh ex gratia to SPO Subrahmanyam Raju, who succumbed to burns when MRPS members torched it, was rejected outright by the police officer’s widow Sujatha on Saturday.

Ms. Sujatha described Mr. Manda Krishna’s offer as unfortunate and derided him for fixing a value to her husband’s life.

She told newsmen who contacted her in B.P. Rachapalle in Obulavaripalle mandal that she would be ‘sinning’ if she accepted the money.

She asked if Manda Krishna would accept such benevolence if he or his kin were victims.
