They had discontinued engineering in Hyderabad due to their love and got married on January 30th this year. Amrutha was 20-Years-Old when she got married. They planned reception on August 17th. Even DSP was invited for the occasion. DSP cautioned Amrutha about the suspicious activities of her Father. He told Amrutha that her Father isn't a good person and he might harm them. As per the advice of Police, Pranay arranged CCTV Cameras inside and outside his house. Maruthi Rao tried desperately to make Amrutha abort her child. He even pressurized Doctor Jyothi for the abortion. Amrutha's Mother have no role in the crime,' he revealed.
