Kuda Chandrakala (25) ST Valmiki by caste is the 3rd daughter of Kondala Rao and Veeresamma. She has 3 sisters and one brother. She has been living in Paderu along with children and husband for the past 10 years. Her husband Kesava Rao (30 ) is a Taxi driver. 3 years ago they borrowed Rs 3,000/- from one Mr. Chatri Naresh (27) S/o Satyanarayana Singh, a money lender. Naresh developed acquaintance with Chandrakala and became very close in these 3 years. Naresh used to come to the house of Chandrakala in the absence of her husband and enjoy her sexually. Later her husband came to know about their extra-marital relation and warned Naresh and his wife. But there was no change in Naresh and he continued his relation though Chandrakala rejected to do so and Chandrakala had to face harassment even from her husband.
Unable to bear the harassment of her husband, one month prior to this incident, in the presence of caste elders Chandrakala got separated from her husband and took shelter in her sister’s house. Later she rented a room in Bakkalapanupu one week ago and shifted there. Naresh came to know about her room, continued his harassment, scold her and doubt that she was with someone else and hence has taken a separate room. Similarly he used to doubt her whenever her phone was in engage.
On the midnight of 12/05/2015 Chandrakala was in her room. Naresh came inside by climbing the door and quarreled that somebody was there under the cot and that’s why she was unwilling to talk with him on the phone and started beating her with belt and kicked her with leg and she fell down unconsciously. Next day she informed to her family members about the incident and her brother lodged a complaint in Paderu Police Station. Later Chandrakala was sent to King George Hospital, Visakhapatnam for treatment.
