Another police team which went to Gudigandla village clamped down on the houses of other accused Jollu Naveen Kumar, Jollu Shiva and Chennakeshavulu and arrested them around 2 am in the early hours and shifted them to Hyderabad for further investigation.

When The Hans India contacted main accused's mother, she said that her son was in a disturbed state of mind when he came home late on Wednesday night.
"My son came home late in the night and looked disturbed. When I asked him, what happened, he did not reveal the issue causing him distress but said he wanted to sleep. I just asked him to go to sleep.
I never expected the police to come and arrest my son. The police alleged that my son has killed a girl. But as far as I know my son, he is not that kind of a person.
He must have been motivated by others to do such a heinous crime," she said.
The villagers of Kollur, where Dr Priyanka was posted as veterinary doctor, said that she was a dedicated and committed doctor who came to the village every day at around 9.30 am and left work at 2.30 pm after completing her duties.

We demand that the government take stern action and give capital punishment to whoever is involved in the murder."
