Sasikala Murder: Husband Allowed to Attend the Funeral in India

New Jersey: The husband of Sasikala, who was murdered along with her six-year-old son in New Jersey last week, is given permission by the US to go to India for the funeral.

Hanumantha Rao was initially not allowed to leave the country, and the police even confiscated his passport.

Rao reportedly found both mother and son dead in a pool after he returned from work. He contacted police and informed them. He had a strong alibi to support his claim, according to reports.

Post-mortems were performed on both the bodies and the remains were sent to India.

Rao’s movements are “not restricted in any way by the criminal justice system,” according to Joel Bewley, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s spokesperson, reported by a local news channel. He hasn’t been charged with anything, according to the channel.

According to NDTV reports, the spokesperson told the channel that he wouldn’t comment on whether Rao is a suspect, as they (his office) are not allowed to talk about any past, present and future suspects.

Rao’s in-laws back in India claimed in a press conference that he was behind the murder. They alleged that Rao had an illegal affair with another woman, which the spokesperson reportedly confirmed.

Her relatives attended on her. Subba Rao said his son did not accompany the bodies. None from the family of Sasikala’s parents went to her father-in-law’s place due to family feud on account of the extra-marital affair Hanumantha Rao was allegedly having with Deepa Ajit, a Malayalee woman. Sasikala’s parents accused Hanumantha Rao of killing their daughter and grandson.

Bodies Of Sasikala, Anish Sai To Reach Hyderabad In Wee Hours Of Sunday

New Jersey/ AP:

• Information not passed to Sasikala Parents
• TANA confirms lifting of bodies by Air India flight

Hyderabad: Narra Sasikala and her son’s bodies are expected to reach Mumbai by 2.30 am, wee hour of Sunday, according to Primepost sources. Sasikala’s Parents are not revealing any information on the arrival of bodies or where last rites will be performed. But still dual versions are going on about the presence of Hanumantha Rao, Sasikala’s husband, during the funeral at Thimmarajupalem Village in Praksam District of AP. It is the native place of Hanumantha Rao.

After nine days of murder, Burlington police could not find any clues related to this brutal murder in Fox Meadows apartment in New Jersey. Hanumantha Rao proved his alibi that he was present at the office when the incident took place. Hanumantha Rao’s request to his in-laws about last rites being performed in his presence was strongly objected to.

As per our sources, Police have returned Hanumantha Rao’s passport and gave a signal for him to go to India, but still it is a question mark whether Hanumantha Rao is accompanying the bodies or is staying back in the US.

Justice Eludes Sasikala’s Parents, Not Contacted Yet

DARA GOPI

Amaravati: Parents of Telugu techie Narra Sasikala who was found dead in her New Jersey flat along with her six year old son feel ignored even after the a week of their daughter’s death. The parents complain that they were not contacted till date either by their son-in-law Narra Hanumantha Rao or his parents Narra Subba Rao and Siva Parvathi who live in Thimmarajupalem of Prakasam district.

Sasikala’s parents are in regular contact with the US police and consulate requesting them to hand over the bodies of their daughter and grandson to them in Vijayawada in vain. It is said that the US police and the representatives of the TANA have decided on sending the bodies to Thimmarajupalem and not to Vijayawada. Their request to place the bodies in their house even for just two hours for the relatives to have the last look fell in deaf ears.

“We are trying our best to have the last glimpse of the bodies of our daughter and grandson even for a few minutes. It is unfortunate that even till today neither my son-in-law nor his parents have contacted us,” Sashikala’s father Venkateswara Rao told the media persons.

Meanwhile, the TANA representatives are making arrangements to shift the two bodies of Sashikala and her son to India. The bodies would reach Hyderabad in the next two days and be sent by road to Thimmarajupalem in Prakasam district.

Stalemate Continues Over Sasikala’s Last Rites

DARA GOPI

Amaravati: Stalemate continues over the last rites of Telugu techie Narra Sasikala and her six year old son Anish Sai who were found dead in their New Jersey residence. Sasikala and her son were found dead in the pool of blood in the flat last Thursday. While her parents who live in Vijayawada alleged that their son-in-law Hanumantha Rao must have killed them, the US police are probing into every aspect to find the accused.

The US police have completed the formalities and handed over the bodies to Hanumantha Rao and the representatives of the Telugu Association for further action. Sasikala’s parents in Vijayawada have been asking the US police and the US Consulate to send the bodies to their home, while Hanumantha Rao is said to have decided on having the last rites in US. Interestingly, Hanumantha Rao’s parents who live in Thimmarajupalem village of Paruchuru mandal in Prakasam district want the bodies of their daughter-in-law. Narra Subba Rao and Siva Parvathi, have told their son Hanumantha Rao to send the bodies here. Though Hanumantha Rao had agreed to send the bodies he is not permitted to move out of US due to police restrictions. As he could not accompany the bodies to perform the last rites, Hanumantha Rao is having second thought of conducting the last rites in US. However, this would not be possible only if the parents of the deceased Sashikala give a clean chit to the police.

Back home in Vijayawada, Sasikala’s parents who have complained to the US consulate and the police against Hanumantha Rao and his girl friend and they are not willing to take back their complaint. “How is it possible? We have doubts over the role of our son-in-law and his girl friend in the death of our daughter. We can’t withdraw the complaint without the police completing the investigation and identifying the criminals,” said Venkateswara Rao.

As both Hanumantha Rao and his parents want the bodies to be taken to Thimmarajupalem village of Prakasam district for the funeral, Sashikala’s parents have taken one step backward and asked the US consulate to keep the bodies in their Vijayawada house at least for a few hours before they are sent to the in-law’s house. Venkateswara Rao is in constant touch with the police and the representatives of the Telugu association.

It is to be seen how things would get unfolded once the US police issue clearance for the travel of the two bodies on Wednesday evening.

Sasikala Murder: Bodies To Reach India On Thursday

Vijayawada: Bodies of Sasikala, Telugu techie, who was murdered along with her son, Anish Sai, will be reaching India on Thursday morning. Legal formalities by Burlington police have been completed and TANA is waiting for the death certificates of the two victims to shift the bodies to India. The bodies are lying at the funeral house in New Jersey. The representatives of TANA are attending to the details. Hanumantha Rao, Sasikala’s husband has been cooperating with the police in investigations.

Police are looking in multiple directions to know the reasons behind these murders. They came to a conclusion that as there were series of incidents of domestic violence between Sasikala and Hanumantha Rao the role of the husband has to be ascertained. The fact that there are a number of stab injuries on the face of the child indicates that the crime may have been committed by a person who is familiar to the family.

After questioning several persons known to Sasikala and Hanumantha Rao, the police have zeroed on two vital clues. One, the suspicion that a woman is involved in the crime and two, the killer, whoever it was, has a lot of hatred and anger against the victims. The police have taken into cognisance the emails sent by Sasikala to her brother at Vijayawada. They are also examining the details of the chat between Hanumantha Rao and his friend Deepa Ajit whom they have already questioned. These material evidences are considered from the angle of domestic discord and quarrel

Sasikala Murder: Hanumantha Rao To Decide On Bringing Bodies To Vijayawada

New York: ‘It is for Hanumantha Rao to decide when and where to take the bodies of his wife and son,’ said Ravi Potluri, Joint Secretary of TANA and a relative of Sasikala, the Telugu Techie who was Murdered on March 24 along with her beloved son. Rao was allowed by the police to see the bodies of his wife and son at the funeral home where they were kept.

Rao continues to plead innocent. Asked by the maple Shade police whom he is suspecting, Rao said he does not have any enemies and ‘we mind our business.’ Asked about Deepa Ajit, he refused to accept that he was having extra-marital affair with her. ‘I love my wife and son very much. I still can’t believe that such a gruesome murder took place at my house,’ he said. Rao told the police that on March 24, he dropped his son, Anish,7, at his school at 8 am and his wife at her office at 9.30 am and then went to his office. He attended a party after the office hours and was dropped by his friends at home at 9 pm. He called for his son. When there was no response,he thought Anish was playing with iPad as he usually does and his wife working at the computer. When he entered the bedroom he was shocked to see the bodies of Sasikala,36, and Anish in a pool of blood. Then he rushed out and called the police at 911. He then called up his parents and the parents of Sasikala besides Mohan Nannapaneni and Ravi Potluri, office bearers of TANA. He also informed friends and relatives including a cousin of Sasikala who lives in the US. Ravi told the media that Rao is cooperating with the police in the investigations.

Back home, Sasikala’s father Sunkara Venkateswara Rao is understood to have told media persons on Monday that Sasikala would have returned to India two years ago but for the dream of his grandson to study medicine in the US. “Anish is a brilliant student. He has been the school topper. He was always saying that he wants to become a doctor and study medicine there,” Venkateswar Rao said. His wife Krishna Kumari said two years after Anish was born, Hanumantha Rao started his illicit relationship with Deepa and stopped giving money to run the house. In 2015, Sasikala opened a separate bank account and it was resented by her husband. He increased the physical and mental torture. He did not like Sasikala asserting herself.

” I called him (son-in-law, Rao) one month ago. He did not take the call. When I told my daughter that her husband refused to talk to me, she said he would call later. He called me after a month only to inform me about the murders,” said Krishan Kumar with choked voice.

Sasikala Murder: Is The House Jinxed?

New Jersey: Is Fox Meadows Apartment Complex where the double murder of Telugu Techie Sasikala and her son Anish Sai took place jinxed? That is what a local newspaper appears to believe. The Thursday murders are the fifth in a row.

The previous murders took place in the apartments in 1996 and 2015, according to Burlington County Times (BCT). The paper recalled that two brothers were stabbed a number of times till they died. This gruesome murder happened in 2014.

The murders that took place at the apartments appear to be most cruel and crude. Any killing is cruel but killing by axe or knife is rather primitive. In 1996, a man killed his wife by hacking with an axe. The killer was sentenced to death by the court in 2014.

BCT said TANA representatives are making arrangements to send bodies of Sasikala and Anish Sai to India. Hanumantha Rao was questioned by the police for ten hours. The police refused to talk about their investigations.

The investigating officials denied it was a hate crime. Public Information Officer at the prosecutor’s office Joel Bewley said emphatically that the murders are not on account of any bias.

New Jersey: Maple Shade police have questioned Nara Hanumantha Rao, husband of the slain Telugu techie Sasikala, and his friend Deepa Ajit on Saturday. The police also quizzed three colleagues of Rao. He was questioned for the second time.

“Since it is double murder case, the police will take a couple of days to hand over the bodies to be taken home, said Mohan Nannapaneni of Telugu Association of North America (TANA).

Hanumantha Rao’s passport is in his house which is under lock. The police have not allowed him to go into the house. If he is allowed, he may fly to India and seek police protection from Andhra Pradesh. Rao said he discovered the bodies after retuning from office on Thursday evening. Three colleagues at his office have confirmed to the police that they dropped Rao at the house in Fox Meadows Apartments. When the police asked him if the door of the apartment was open or he used key to enter the house, Rao replied in a vague manner saying that he did not remember the details as he was speaking on mobile. As he entered the house he called out Anish. When his son did not respond, he entered their bedroom where Anish was lying dead on the bed and the body of Sasikala was on the ground.

Mohan Nannapaneni said Rao was disturbed with the reports linking him to the murder. He said Rao told him that he wants to go to India for the funeral. He said that Hanumantha Rao told him that he is absolutely innocent and the police will have to find out the culprits.

Sasikala Murder: Hanumantha Rao’s Lover Is Deepa Ajit, A Malayalee

Vijayawada: Sasikala, the Telugu Techie who was killed along with her son Anish Sai in New Jersey in the US on Thursday had sent an email to her brother Venu saying that her husband has extra-marital relationship with a Malayali woman. The parents of Sasikala had divulged the details of the mail here on Saturday morning.

“Hanumanth has relationship with Deepa Ajit who is working in TCS. Hanumanth has been talking and chatting with her on mobile everyday. I noticed the chat in mobile and directly questioned him about it. He said he did not do anything wrong. There is no trace of remorse in Hanumanth. He is expressing anger at me. He showed a rebellious attitude saying ‘do what you can.’ Having a five-year old son and maintaining extra-marital relationship is something abnoxious. I trusted Hanumantha Rao. Ours was a love marriage. I never thought I would be cheated like this. His parents, sister and brother-in-law are all part of the conspiracy. They don’t share anything. My mother-in-law, in particular, knows how to make use of her son.

“Mother will feel bad if she comes to know of my agony. I am living in spite of so many problems only for the sake of Anish,” Sasikala narrated her woes in her mail to her brother. Parents of Sasikala have shown all the e-mails and WhatsApp messages to prove that Hanumantha Rao has been harassing their daughter. They also gave the details of chatting between Hanumantha Rao and Deepa Ajit.

Deepa accused Hanumantha Rao of lying. ” I can stand before my husband and say I am in love with you. Can you say the same thing with your wife? You are afraid of your wife. If you are so scared why did you prolong our relationship this far? I did not hide any thing with you,” said the Malayalee woman.

Sasikala’s parents Venkateswara Rao and Krishna Kumari demanded that severe punishment should be given to the killer of their daughter and grandson. They expressed agony that they are not getting cooperation from State and central governments.

Techie Sasikala’s Parents Accuse Son-In-Law For Her Death

DARA GOPI

Amaravati: Parents of a techie, Narra Sasikala, who was found dead in her US flat, point an accusing finger at their son-in-law. Sasikala and her seven-year-old son, Anish Sai were found dead and the US police have already taken Sasikala’s husband, Hanumantha Rao into custody.

Sasikala’s parents, Sunkara Venkateswara Rao and Krishna Kumari, both retired teachers residing in Lakshmipuram Colony on the outskirts of the city, alleged that their son-in-law had killed their daughter and grandson. They alleged that their son-in-law had been harassing their daughter for the past four years. They said that Hanumantha Rao had an extra-marital affair with another woman, his colleague in the office, which was opposed by Sasikala. The couple had verbal exchanges often with Sasikala objecting to the affair and Hanumantha Rao asking her to accept it. The parents alleged that Hanumantha Rao was also giving huge money to the other woman while Sasikala was running home with her earnings as she works from home.

The parents appealed to the US Embassy in India to help the family in bringing back the bodies of their daughter and grandson. “This is unfortunately the weekend and we have to approach the officials only on Monday. We hope that the officials of both US and India would help us. We also request the Telugu-speaking people in US to help us,” the parents said.

The parents said that Sasikala had informed them and her in-laws about Hanumantha Rao’s affair and sought their intervention to end it. The parents also said that they have tried to advise their son-in-law to stop the affair and harassing their daughter. In fact, both Venkateswara Rao and Krishna Kumari had planned to visit their daughter in US in May this year and talk to the son-in-law in person.

As Hanumantha Rao was misusing the family’s money, Sasikala had opened a separate bank account which had strained the relations between the two. Since then, Hanumantha Rao is alleged to have intensified the harassment for money and even began to torture her.

Sasikala spoke to the parents 12 hours before her untimely death. She had informed the parents of her son’s achievement in the school where he was to be honored as the best student in the school.

Meanwhile, Narra Subba Rao and Siva Parvathi, parents of Hanumantha Rao, who live in Thimmarajupalem village of Parchuru mandal in Prakasam district, too were in a shock following the death of their daughter-in-law and grandson and the subsequent arrest of their son by the US police.

Aarti Agarwal was currently acting in a movie called ‘Neelaveni’, which is incomplete. Hindi film ‘Paagalpan’ was her first movie, while ‘Nuvvu Naaku Nachchavu’ was her first Telugu movie.
