Victim’s nephew among the accused, say police

Police cracked the triple murder case of Garladinne, in which a woman and her two children were brutally murdered in their house, and arrested five persons on Monday, including Srirangam Harikrishna, 21, her nephew.

The other arrested were identified as Chandu Nagendra, 44, Chandu Nagaraju, 45, Srirangam Shunkana, 59, and Chandu Peddasunkanna, 62. The police also recovered two sickles.

Inter-caste marriage

DSP J. Venkata Rao on Monday said upon interrogation, it was found that the motive behind the December 19 murder was the inter-caste marriage of the victim, Srirangam Meenakshi, 25, with Nallappa.

The couple’s daughter Keerthi (8 months) and son Hitesh (3 years) were also done to death. They also had a dispute over some family property sale, he added.

Harikrishna implemented the murder plan by coming to Meenakshi’s house on a two-wheeler, police said.
