HYDERABAD: A Bhongir court on Monday sentenced nine persons, convicted in a trespassing and property damage case, to two years imprisonment. A fine of Rs 2,000 each was also imposed on them by additional sessions judge. The nine persons were booked for unleashing violence at the house of in-laws of their relative who ended her life.
In January 2015, Vemula Swapna married Vemula Sreekanth and moved to Medipally village. Due to differences with Sreekanth, Swapna died by suicide.

To everyone's shock, they moved Swapna's body, damaged the doors, brought out their household items and set them ablaze. They also barged into the house of Sreekanth's grandparents before burning it down. They also demanded that Rs 6,50,000 compensation be given to the parents of the deceased.
