Preeti, who was with the body of Prashant at Apollo Hospital , had told the police that her husband had shot himself. But Vilasini, Prashant Reddy’s wife, charged the Pradesh Congress Committee president’s son K. Venkat with killing her husband.
Sources close to Venkat’s family claimed that Vilasini is the first wife of Prashant Reddy. Preeti was also said to be a partner in the real estate business run by Venkat and Prashant. The sources said that there was trouble between the two friends over Venkat Rao’s interference in the personal life of Prashant.
