Siddala Vijay/35 and his wife Rahelu SC Madiga by caste reside at Dolas Nagar, Tadepalli mandal of Guntur district. They have one daughter and two sons. Daughter Avila/15 studied 9th class and she discontinued her studies. Later Avila started going to work with her parents at China Kakani village at Guntur district. They worked for 3months in that place. Munabolu Gopi is an auto driver belonging to China Kakani village, and he used to transport the workers from China Kakani to Dolas Nagar regularly. At that time, Gopi developed intimacy with Avila. Later Avila stopped going for work in China Kakani. Avila resumed to go for work in leaf plates manufacturing (Istarakula) Company at Yerrabalem.
