On May 29, 2021 Rishi first met the 25-year-old woman at Srikakulam RTC bus station and the duo took the same auto rickshaw from Srikakulam to Nathavalasa club. The duo quickly became friends, shared a phone number and decided to meet the next day.
On May 30, the victim visited Rishi’s house in PM Palem when his wife left and the duo had a physical relationship. However, after the incident, the woman allegedly demanded money from him. Rishi immediately says that he cannot pay the money but the woman threatens to tell the villagers about it. Fearing this, Rishi covers her with his shirt, wraps her in a blanket and puts her in a plastic box. He locked his home and left with the keys. He never returned to the area after the operation for fear of arrest. He moved with his family to Visakhapatnam.
