On the afternoon of Nov 4, Chandraiah was outside Vijaya Reddy's chamber, when he noticed smoke and cries for help from inside. He along with Vijaya Reddy's private driver Gurunatham rushed to her rescue and even tried to nab Suresh, who was absconding. While Vijaya Reddy died on the spot, Chandraiah and Gurunatham also received severe burns.

Kura Suresh, who himself suffered 60 per cent burns, later told police that he was angry at the injustice done to his family over a land issue. He told the police that though she did not demand any money from his family, he was suspicious that she had taken money from the opposite party and was acting in their favour.
