It’s tough for 60-year-old farmer Vallabhaneni Satyanarayana to console his seven-year-old grandson when he keeps insisting, - “Where is my papa? Where have my parents gone?”. The extensive coverage in the media is in a way making it difficult for the little one, V Sri Sairam. Watching his parents’ visuals on the telly, he keeps coming back to his grandparents with the same questions.
Sri Sairam is the eldest son of V Chandrasekhar and Anupama who were arrested by the Oslo police for his alleged maltreatment in Oslo. Chandrasekhar is an IT professional working with TCS in Oslo while his wife Anupama is a home-maker.
“All my family members and friends were watching TV channels to know the updates on the case status of Chandrasekhar and Anupama. Sai Sriram, who came to us, repeatedly asks about his parents who are still in Oslo police custody. The younger son Abhiram is also crying to see his parents and refuses to eat food. It’s been tough for us to console the children ever since the couple were taken into custody,’’ explained Sailender, nephew of Chandrasekhar.
All the family members and relatives of the couple had eagerly waited for the judgement that was supposed to be delivered Monday. The Oslo Court, however, reserved the order to Tuesday. The court is likely to send the order copy to the couple’s email IDs and their advocates on Tuesday.
Sailender said Chandrasekhar and Anupama’s counsels are in touch with the family members in the city. “We provided bonafide evidence to the court and the Oslo police including medical certificates of Sri Sairam stating his mental and physical condition. The court and the police might have considered the plea of the couple’s family members and they may be let off,” hoped the 26-year-old.
If, however, the judgement is no in their favour, the family members are likely to appeal in a higher court. According to the charges framed, they can appeal against the verdict in higher court than applying for bail.
Chandrasekhar had his primary and upper primary education in his native place Dondapadu located near Gudiwada town in Krishna district and his father Satyanarayana is a farmer. He finished a polytechnic course in Warangal and soon after, got a job as an IT professional in Wipro. He came to the city around 15 years agoand worked in various IT firms.
Norway is the second foreign posting for Chandrasekhar. Earlier, the couple were in London. Before he left for Norway, he had reportedly gained knowledge about the place and its culture through friends.
Meanwhile, the Telugu Association on Monday staged a protest in front of the Indian Embassy in Oslo demanding the couple’s release.
