VISAKHAPATNAM: Andhra Pradesh speaker Kodela Sivaprasad Rao’s daughter-in-law K Padmapriya filed a kidnap case against her estranged husband Kodela Sivaramakrishna at the III-Town police station here on Thursday. The couple was having a marital dispute and Padmapriya alleged that Sivaramakrishna forcefully took away her son Gowtham from her parents’ house in Peda Waltair on Wednesday night. Though the III-Town police acknowledged that a case was registered, they refused to reveal the details.

Sources said Padmapriya of Peda Waltair was married to Sivaramakrishna in 2009 and she gave birth to a son, Gowtham in 2010.  However, she was reportedly being harassed by her in-laws and her husband used to pick up frequent quarrels with her. After this, she moved to her maternal house along with her son a year ago and was living there ever since.

In her complaint with the police, Padmapriya said that her estranged husband along with four others, including two officially allotted gunmen, barged into her parents’ house Wednesday night and forcibly took away her son after reportedly assaulting her and her parents. She also alleged that she had been living with threats ever since she left her in-laws’ house and the threats increased when Sivaprasad became the AP Assembly Speaker.
