The accused were identified as Somu Sambasiva Reddy (27) and Duvvuru Maheswara Reddy (34), both belonging to Pera Reddy Kottalu village of Khajipet mandal. Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, DSP B Srinivaluru said that Y Vijaya Kumar was studying first year degree at Sahitya Degree College in Mydukuru town.
A relative of the arrested persons, S Tanusha, is also studying in the same college.
