Human Rights Commission acts in harassment case

Justice Subhashan Reddy, Chairman of the State Human Rights Commission, today directed the Visakhapatnam District Collector to extend financial assistance and police protection to Madhurima of Peda Waltair in Visakhapatnam city.

The commission held a hearing today on a complaint lodged by the Mahila Satta. Since Madhurima was too sick to be physically present, her mother Swarnakumari represented her at the hearing, with the help of Visakhapatnam Mahila Satta President Umadevi.

The Mahila Satta had complained that an NRI, Baru Chakravarti, married Madhurima concealing the fact that he had already been married and subjected her to brutal harassment.

Giving this information to the media, Mrs. K. Geetha Murthy and Mr. V. Laxman Balaji said the Commission had directed the Visakhapatnam Collector to register a case under Sec. 494 I. P.C. and arrest the boy’s parents also and arrange her medical treatment under Aarogyasri. The case was adjourned to October 12 for further hearing.

It may be recalled the Mahila Satta had taken up the case with the DGP, the Home Minister and the Human Rights Commission as the police in Vizag did not act with alacrity.


  1. no financial support came from loksatta party as per I came to know Iam one of the government employee who is following this case..where is the truth which has loksatta party did??and what happen to the promise they did to madhurima??

  2. Did Loksatta promise financial support to Madhurima? From the news, I cannot see any promise of Financial Support by Loksatta.

  3. please refer the sakshi dated 7_9_2009 in which it was promised by loksatta party active member one Mr.Srini Mahesh gave a statement to donate rupees 1 lakh to madhurima by collecting rs.1000 from active members of the party.I think this may come under a promise of financial support to one who is in diar need of costly treatment but as you doubted many may have think that this is not a promise . Hence no support is received so far from loksatta party.Also go through the below site which has clearly stated above matter.
