Faction killings, that were subdued for sometime in Rayalaseema region, are again raising their hoods. The recent killing of YSRCP leader Cherukulapadu Narayana Reddy, has opened a new chapter in faction fights. Today, Boreddy Maruthi Reddy was hacked to death mercilessly, by alleged rivals. The case here however, is different. The deceased was said to have had an extra marital affair, which has led to this murder. In another incident in Kurnool, one Somula Nageswar Reddy was hacked to death by his own relatives, over property dispute.
