The couple claimed that they didn’t know that she was pregnant.


A six-month pregnant woman from Bhadradri Kothagudem district in Telangana has suffered miscarriage after a couple allegedly attacked her over a petty issue on Monday. The victim, Badavath Padma, is currently availing treatment at the district area hospital. Police have said that Padma is yet to recover from the shock. The incident took place in Maddiralatanda village in Tekulapalli mandal.

According to preliminary investigation by police, on Monday, Padma who is an Anganwadi worker, went to the Anganwadi centre in Maddiralatanda to question why her daughter, Meghana who studies at the same Anganwadi wasn't allowed to enter the centre. She alleged that her colleague, Malothu Neela has been discriminating against her daughter. This led to a verbal duel between Padma and Neela. However, it quickly escalated into a fight. In the fight, Neela's husband, Veeru also joined and allegedly beat up the victim. Padma suffered a miscarriage following the incident.

Police have taken both the accused under custody and have filed a case against them under IPC section 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) and 316 (Causing death of quick unborn child by act amounting to culpable homicide). The couple reportedly confessed to the police that they did not know that Padma was pregnant.

Outraged over the incident, the victim’s relatives had protested at the Anganwadi centre and sought action by the Kothagudem rural Integrated Child Development Services, Child Development Project Officer, Kanaka Durga against the accused.

Speaking to TNM, Tekulapalli Inspector, Praveen Kumar said, "The victim is yet to recover from the shock. The doctors are on standby. She's (Padma) is under strict medical supervision."

The inspector further said that they will take a statement from the victim after the doctors approve of her mental state. "We have already taken the couple under custody. After taking a statement from Padma, we will send them to remand," he said.
