The issue of non-inclusion of all those who lost their lives in the struggle for creation of Telangana nearly claimed its first victim when Sabitha, the wife of Pradeep, who lost his life during the agitation, attempted suicide in Vikarabad of Ranga Reddy district.
According to reports reaching here, Sabitha made the rounds of the local tehsil office to find out if her husband's name was included in the list released by the government and was informed that it was not so. Apparently distraught at her husband's sacrifice not being recognised, she complained to those who knew her that it was unfair that she was left out of the beneficiaries list.
Sabitha reportedly told them that she was honoured by the district administration earlier which presented her with a shawl in recognition of her husband's sacrifice. Depressed by the fact that her family was left out by the government, Sabitha went home and consumed sleeping pills. Her family members immediately rushed her to the local government hospital where she was treated and is now said to be out of danger.
