One year prior to the incident Hema came into touch with one Mr Jaya Krishna S/o Vasu of the same village thorough Face Book. Hema and Jaya Krishna became close to each other and they use to meet frequently. Hema thorough her relatives came to know that Jaya Krishna’s character is not good and stopped talking with him. Jaya Krishna said to Hema that he has completed his degree whereas, Hema came to know that he has studied 10th standard only. Jaya Krishna continuously, pestered Hema and threatened to keep their photos in Face Book and WhatsApp. Jaya Krishna told to all the classmates of Hema that she is his lover and used to follow her where ever she went.

He took Hema to his brother’s house in Visakhapatnam and from there he took her to Satyanarayana temple in Annavaram exchanged garlands and said that their marriage was over. Since then Jaya Krishna’s father and his friends warned Hema that she is the wife of Jaya Krishna and if at all she leaves him away they will not spare her. Hema was locked in a room for 20days and food was served to her in the room itself. They used to mix some sedatives in the food and give to her. Hema’s parents were worried about her and searched everywhere. Her parents did not lodge a police complaint as they were afraid that it will be very hard for them to get her married and also that they will lose respect in the society.
On one day Hema’s parents were on their way back to home from church and they found Jaya Krishna near the petrol bunk. They caught hold of Jaya Krishna asked about their daughter and warned him that they will lodge a police complaint if he fails to handover Hema. Jaya Krishna was afraid and took them to his house. Hema’s parents approached the elders gave counselling to both of them and took back their daughter Hema. Hema resumed her life as usual and was back to her college. Jaya Krishna did not stop making phone calls to Hema.
During the Pongal holidays in January 2019 Hema went to her aunt’s house at Guntur along with her parents. On 17th January 2019 Jaya Krishna forced Hema to come out of the house on the pretext that he will handover all the photos to her. Hema met Jaya Krishna and asked him for the photos. Jaya Krishna forcibly took Hema in an auto to Chilakaluripet and from there took her to Tirupati in a bus and there they stayed in a lodge for 3 days. All these 3 days Jaya Krishna forcibly has sex with Hema. IN the meantime, Jaya Krishna informed to his father about the matter and he suggested to Jaya Krishna to change his sim card. Jaya Krishna changed his sim card and took Hema to Nagapatnam, from there they came to Vijayawada and from Vijayawada they moved to Mysore, Coimbatore, Ooty, Goa and other places. Hema’s father having come to know that she was missing they lodged a complaint in Arundalpet PS of Guntur city. On the reasons of jurisdiction, the case was transferred to Nallapadu PS. Ultimately, Hema and Jaya Krishna reached Hyderabad and Jaya Krishna’s father met them with some people and warned her their consequences and asked her to say before the police that she has willingly went with Jaya Krishna, or else they will see her end.
