Indian granny killed, infant abducted inc

An Indian woman from Andhra Pradesh visiting the US was killed when she apparently tried to resist the abduction of her 10-month-old granddaughter.

Police and FBI have launched a massive manhunt for the assailants and the kidnappers.

“Saanvi Venna (the baby) is believed to have been taken from her family’s apartment after the murder of her grandmother, Satyavathi Venna, age 61, on Monday,” Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said in a statement.

Pennsylvania State Police has issued an Amber Child Abduction Alert.

According to Ferman, the body of Satyavathi Venna, the paternal grandmother of Saanvi, was discovered inside the apartment.

Satyavathi had arrived from India for a visit in July and was scheduled to return home in January. She was babysitting the child.

The parents of the child, Venkata Konda Siva Venna (father) and Chenchu Latha Punuru (mother), had emigrated from India in February 2007.
