It is said that Chandrasekhar (60), his wife Sarojana (55) and his sister Kamalamma (65) hailed from Medak district. Chandrasekhar the bread winner was said to be suffering from financial crunch.

Chandrasekhar’s son Rama Koteshwar Rao, a taxi driver at Siddipet, expressed his inability to take the bodies to Siddipet and perform the last rites due to his poor financial condition. Responding to his plight, the local traders and good Samaritans came forward and performed the last rites of the deceased at a local graveyard with the help of the police.
