Ex-Minister daughter kidnapped and forcibly married
Former minister Maganti Babu's daughter Ravali (18) has filed a complaint against her engineering college mate Ghattamaneni Harish (21) alleging that he had kidnapped her and forcibly married.
Ravali is a second year student at Sir CR Reddy College of engineering in Eluru. In her complaint, she said that Harish had been harassing her in the name of love for the past two years. Few days back, Ravali's parents had sent her to their relatives home at Bangalore to avoid Harish. Some how, Harish got to know about this. He reached Bangalore and with the help of some people he kidnapped Ravali on Feb 10 by threatening her with acid attack. He married her at a temple in Bangalore, took some photos of both together and also made her sign some papers.
Ravali was later taken to the house of Harish's relative at Koppulavarigudem village in Pedavegi mandal in West Godavari. She escaped from there on Saturday night and reached her home finally.
The police swung into action immediately taking the complaint and investigating the case. Cases were registered against six persons - Harish, his father Radhakrishna, relative Pakalapati Brahmaiah, friends Garapati Nanda, Ashok and Rayala Venkat.
