Chikkadpally Police Change Sections of Case to Cheating and Abetment to Suicide


Hyderabad: The Chikkadpally police have changed the sections of the case involving the death of Pravallika, a woman who was preparing for government job recruitment exams, to cheating and abetment to suicide.

Pravallika died by suicide at a hostel in Ashoknagar on Friday night after her relationship with her friend, Shivaram Rathod, went sour.

The police initially booked a case under Section 174 (suspicious death) of CrPC. However, after statements from Pravallika’s mother, Vijaya, her brother Pranay, and two other friends, the police have added Sections 417, 420, and 306 of IPC to the case.

We have changed the sections of the case based on the statements of Pravallika’s family and friends, who have alleged that Shivaram Rathod cheated on her and abetted her suicide,” said DCP (central) M Venkateshwarlu.

The police are continuing their investigation into the case.
