They both were in love for the last five years and as they had attained majority they decided to get married despite parental opposition from the girl’s side. They left home on Saturday night and got married in a temple at Penchalakona. After the marriage, they reached Hari's house in Annareddypalem on Sunday.
On Sunday night, Satyavolu Satyamreddy, along with about 30 other TDP activists went to Hari's house in Annareddypalem in autos and tried to force the bride's into the auto.
