Following the sudden death of three teenagers of their village in the last one month, the villagers of Nemali of Rajapeta mandal in Nalgonda district are living in the grip of fear. They now believe that now there is a bad omen in the village which is affecting their lives.

The superstitious villagers are setting up fire in the evening in front of their houses and also on the four boundaries of the village to ward off and to overcome the evil influence.

The villagers became superstitious after three students committed suicide for various reasons.

On March 14 P Naresh (16), a first year Intermediate and Siddhulu (17), a second year Inter student in Rajapaeta mandal headquarters committed suicide allegedly over love failure.

In another incident on March 21, K Karunakar (14) studying class 9, committed suicide after his mother allegedly chided him.

Meanwhile, a woman who claimed that goddess has taken possession on her told villagers that a devil is claiming lives of the youngsters.

She reportedly told that six more youngsters from the villa ge would die soon.

And to prevent these deaths she asked the villagers to arrange fire in front of their houses and at the boundaries of the village.
