This came to the notice of Sarika after a period of time. Gap that could never be bridged was created between Sarika and Anil because of the affair with another woman, say political circles. Since they already had three kids, Sarika could not part from Anil. So, she brought the matter to the notice of her father-in-law, Rajaiah.

It is observed that Anil married the other woman with the acceptance of Rajaiah and wife.
Sarika registered a case against husband Anil, Rajaiah and his wife in April, 2014 under Section 498. She mentioned in the complaint that her husband and in-laws were ignoring her and her children. She even conducted a dharna in front of Rajaiah’s residence demanding justice. Later, with the intervention of some mediators, she went back to in-laws’ place. But Sarika and Anil lived in different floors in the same building. In a three-storeyed building, Rajaiah and wife lived in the third floor, Sarika in second and Anil in ground floor. Sarika is said to be mentally very disturbed due to the consequences she was facing in life. This morning, fire accident occurred in her room. Sarika and her three children were burnt alive. All four were killed due to fire that burst out. Police officials suspect that Sarika has intentionally set fire in her room in order to commit suicide.
