Koyyada Bapu, whose son died for the cause of Telangana, met and requested Karimnagar District Collector Veera Bhadraiah to include the name of his son Vikram in the Telangana martyrs list.
Bapu informed the collector that his son had actively participated in Telangana movement and committed suicide by consuming pesticides on June 27, 2010 protesting against the delay of formation of Telangana.
He also said that even Besant Nagar police investigated the matter and registered an FIR later.
He lamented their family is in a pathetic position due to the death of his son.
He requested the district collector to help their family by including his son in the martyrs list so that the financial benefits announced for the kin of T martyrs apply to his family too.
