The body of Madhukar Reddy Gudur, the techie who allegedly committed suicide in the US last week, was cremated on Tuesday at his home town Bhongir in Telangana. However, during the cremation, Madhukar's relatives attacked his wife Swati, and blamed her for his decision to kill himself.
The angry relatives asked Swati to go away when she came to attend the funeral. Visuals from local media channels show a big crowd pushing and pulling even as a man can be seen randomly throwing punches at the centre of the gathering.
Swati and her mother later approached the police to seek protection.
37-year-old Madhukar was found hanging from a fan in his house in Seattle on April 4. Before ending his life, Madhukar had sent a mail to his parents, requesting them to forgive him.
His relatives said after the marriage he had stopped visiting his parents and they blamed Swati for this alienation.
