HYDERABAD : The parents of deceased Seattle techie, Madhukar Reddy Gudur, who was found hanging at his house in Seattle in United States on April 4, attacked his wife Swathi and her family at Reddy’s funeral on Tuesday.

Parents of Madhukar Reddy, whose body reached Bhongir town in Telangana on Tuesday, allege that their daughter-in-law Swathi is responsible for his death.

The family was preparing for the last rites when Swathi and her family arrived for the cremation. Swathi was attacked by Reddy’s family members, and thrashed by the father Bal Reddy, who also attacked the relatives who came for to rescue her.  

Later, Swathi filed a case with local police complaining about threat to life by Madhukar Reddy Gudur's family members. Meanwhile, Bal Reddy continued to allege that Swathi was responsible for Madhukar’s death.

“My son was not meek to end his life. We have doubts over his death and we do not believe that he committed suicide,'' he said, adding that the US and Telangana police should probe into Swathi's role in the case. Swathi, however, claimed that Madhukar Reddy was disturbed since their marriage.

According to reports, Madhukar Reddy Gudur was employed in a software firm in Seattle for the past seven years. His wife is also employed there and the couple have a seven-year-old daughter.
