VISAKHAPATNAM: The family dispute of AP Assembly speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao took a fresh turn in Visakhapatnam Monday with his daughter-in-law K Padmapriya alleging that her father-in-law and her estranged husband Siva Ramakrishna were misusing their official position to settle scores with her and separate her from her son Gautham. She alleged that false cases were filed against her father under the SC and ST Atrocities Act at the behest of her father-in-law Siva Prasada Rao.

Addressing a press conference here, Padmapriya said that she got married to Siva Ramakrishna in 2009 but she has been staying separately at her father V Krishna Rao’s residence near Peda Waltair for the last one year with her four-year-old son K Gautham due to problems with her husband and in-laws. She lodged a complaint with the III Town police on Sept 19 stating that Siva Ramakrishna, along with 10 others including two gunmen, barged into her father’s residence and kidnapped her son on the night of Sept 18.

“Immediately after, I filed a complaint with the III Town police. Now that the issue is public, my father-in-law and husband are trying to pressurise my family to withdraw the case, by getting cases registered against my father under false charges as they feel that without my family’s help, I would be helpless and let my son go,” she said.

A case was registered against Padmapriya’s parents Krishna Rao and Vijaya Lakshmi under SC and ST Atrocities Act for allegedly cheating one Ch Prakash of Satya Add Life.
