Mr.Chinna Reddy's people have given a complaint to the Nandyal Police Station. A constable came to the house and enquired. There was again a phone call which was attended by the constable himself. The caller threatened that he will kill everybody. The family has traced out the phone numbers of the people who have been making the calls. They have made a complaint to the District Collector, Kurnool on 9th August, 2010., requesting security for the family and the children and also for taking action against the people who are doing the mischief.
