The MLC is now in the judicial remand and lodged in the Rajamahendravaram Central Prison.
Mr. Victor Prasad and two members of the commission visited the family of Subramanyam at G. Maamidada village in Kakinada district, and assured to extend compensation the family was entitled to under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.
