Tenali (Guntur): CPI State secretary Narayana, Telugu Mahila State president Shobha Hymavathi and Rajya Sabha member JD Seelam visited Suneela's residence and offered condolences to the victim's family here on Saturday. The 45-year-old woman Suneela had died while protecting her daughter from a group of drunken youths in Tenali. Speaking on the occasion, CPI State secretary Narayana has demanded the culprits responsible for Suneela's death to be shot dead. He offered condolences to the victim's family members in Tenali. Narayana held government responsible for the crimes happening against women in the State. The culprits should be punished under Nirbhaya Act, he demanded. Telugu Mahila State president Shobha Hymavathi said that the presence of many liquor shops was the reason for increase in crime. The government should be held completely responsible for Suneela's death, she said. She criticised Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy for not coming to offer condolences to the grieving family. The government should release a white paper on the atrocities happening against women in the State or else agitations would be raised at the Assembly with all the women organisations, she warned. Also Rajya Sabha member JD Seelam paid a visit to the victim's residence to offer condolences to the grieving family. He said that the government should make sure that justice was delivered to Suneela's family. Incidents of these kinds bring bad reputation to the town which is otherwise known for its rich culture, the MP resented. Suneela's story as part of syllabus Rural Development Minister Dokka Manikya Varaprasad said that it would be inspirational to the students if the bravery displayed by Suneela to protect her daughter would be made as part of the syllabus. The Minister, who offered condolences to the victim's family here on Saturday, assured of supporting them in all ways. He said that he discussed the issue with the Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and other higher district officials. The officials were directed to extend complete support to the family, he informed. The culprits responsible for the crime would be punished strictly once the investigation is completed. BJP leader calls on bereaved family BJP national general secretary Muralidhar Rao visited Tenali to express his sympathies to the bereaved family. He paid homage to the brave woman and extended support to her husband Babu Rao and daughter Mounika. Speaking on the occasion, he said that Nirbhaya incident in Delhi and Suneela incident in AP show the negligence of the Congress governments towards women safety.
