The gruesome murder of 24-year-old Pranay Perumalla on Friday in Telangana’s Miryalguda town has evoked public outrage from public. Pranay’s wife Amrutha Varshini has demanded action against her parents and others for murdering her husband.
Pranay’s Wife Amrutha Varshini Has Demanded Action Against Her Father
Amrutha belongs to Vaishya community while Pranay is a Dalit Christian. The couple got married in January against Amrutha’s parents but instead of things getting settled after their marriage it tuned to worse with a plan of deadly murder. Now, Amrutha in a statement said that her father T. Maruthi Rao was aided by TRS leader Nakrekal MLA Vemula Veeresham with others.
“Nakrekal MLA Vemula Veeresham called us to meet him, but Pranay and I were scared because we had seen news that he was involved in some criminal cases in Nalgonda itself. He also got a case booked against my father-in-law. There was no name of the complainant but the police harassed him for two days. They also threatened to file cases against Pranay. That was when we went to IG Stephen Ravindra, who informed other senior police officers,” said Amrutha.
However, the TRS leader said that he doesn’t know the couple and came to know about them only after watching news. “I never met or called Pranay or his father Balaswamy, nor forced any false cases against at Ketheypally police station. I have seen and heard of Amrutha Varshini and Pranay for the first time on television,” said the legislator.

Netizens have strongly condemned the fatal incident too. Many are shell-shocked that how even in the year 2018 caste comes to fore.
Does #honourkilling imply that such crimes are "honourable" inorder to Honor Ur #caste? Heartbroken over #Pranay news #pranayamrutha #prayers #shameonsociety #JusticeForPranay #SayNoToCaste #respectlife

From here on wards added a new column caste in every blood requirement. So people who needs blood , should mention caste also along with blood group.
Ex : Blood group : A -ve , Caste : XX
Note : if caste is not mentioned it should leads to death #rippranay #AmruthaPranay

Em sadincharu vallani vidadisi..
It's hard to find true love and yet u killed who loved ur daughter with all his heart. Just because of caste. Every father wants a husband for their daughter who would look after them just like him. Ur daughter was so lucky. 😔😔#RipPranay pic.twitter.com/qK9yQ6yxkG
