A retired assistant engineer was killed by persons suspected to be his relatives when he went to practice yoga at NG College Grounds in Nalgonda town in the wee hours of Sunday.

The miscreants attacked the victim with knives and axes resulting in his instant death before fleeing from the spot. According to the police, the deceased was identified as Dhonuri Madhava Reddy (64), a native of Brahmanavemla village in Narketpally mandal and a resident of the Housing Board Colony in Nalgonda town.  Around 4.30 a.m., Madhava Reddy, as part of his routine, went to the Grounds near his house to practice yoga when some unidentified persons attacked him. They took advantage of the darkness and absence of people and fled from the spot after killing him. Madhava Reddy died even before neighbours reached to help him.

The victim’s son, Narendar Reddy, lodged a complaint with II Town police suspecting that his father’s brother-in-law K Sai Reddy, with the help of his sons Dasaradha Reddy and Venkat Reddy, killed Madhava Reddy over some land dispute. II Town police began inquiry into the case.
