The wife of Maddalacheruvu Suri expressed discontent over the life imprisonment given to her husband's assailant, Bhanukiran, by Nampally court. She said that he deserves worse punishment than this. Bhanukiran, who had been assistant of Suri, killed him by shooting him down at point blank range on January 3rd, 2011. Both were gangsters. Bhanu absconded after the crime but was nabbed in 2012. The prosecution collected 117 evidences in the case, leading to Bhanu's sentencing. Bhanu allegedly shot Suri dead because he insulted him in front of others.
