According to relatives, Pisudde and Nagrale knew each other but Pisudde had broken off ties with him due to his behaviour. Despite this, Nagrale used to harass and stalk her.

After this sensational incident, protests have broken out in the entire area and police had to resort to baton charge. An atmosphere of tension prevails in the area, where local people, women and college students held a protest demanding the death penalty for Nagrale.

In an effort to provide justice to the victim’s family, the state government has appointed well-known lawyer Ujjwal Nikam as the special public prosecutor in this case.
