Pranay was killed in the fifth attempt

Pranay and Amrutha also discontinued engineering. They got married on January 30 this year in Hyderabad and returned to Miryalaguda.

The plan to kill Pranay was hatched in June when the father got in touch with Bari through the town’s Congressman and a transporter, Abdul Kareem. On July 10, an advance of Rs. 15 lakh was shared among Ali, Bari and Kareem. Learning about Amrutha’s hospital visit for pre-natal check-ups, Maruthi Rao pressured the doctor to abort the pregnancy. But on September 14, after several attempts and talks failed, the plan was executed, Mr. Ranganath said.

Sharma escaped via Nalgonda-Hyderabad-Bangalore and reached Patna. Ali and Bari met on NH-65. After news broke on TV, Maruthi Rao was taken into custody. The accused have been booked for murder, abetment, criminal conspiracy, and under Section 3 (2) of the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act.
