HYDERABAD: Abhinav Mahender who alleged that he was beaten up by Sai Kiran, son of commercial taxes minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, pleaded his wife be sent back to him.

“After Sai Kiran threatened that he can get police cases filed against me and asked me to send Bhuvana back home, I asked her to go to her parents place on Oct 24.

According to Abhinav, at around 10.30 a.m. on Oct 26 some people came to his home at Maredpally and took him to the commercial taxes minister’s office in the same locality and beat me up. My wife’s father Mahendranath also manhandled me. Bhuvana’s belongings like clothes, photos were taken away from my house, he alleged.
