Allu Sirish: I am extremely sad, angry and then feel helpless. I hope our collective anger results in justice for Priyanka, but also ensures more safety measures for women. #JusticeForPriyankaReddy I would like women to move around freely & fearlessly, but I'd still ask all of you to take ample safety precautions. I don't know what else to say. One part of me wants them to be fearless, but another part of me fears their safety.

Allari Naresh: Nothing short of gruesome and heinous ....Deeply disturbed hearing about it. We as a country need to protect our girls or we have no future as a race. Hope justice prevails. #RIPPriyankaReddy

Dr.Rajasekhar: Heartbroken, #Priyankareddy and #Manasa.Just outrageous. The ones responsible must be punished, how long will this go on? How many more souls should we lose! the media and others on the internet are being shameless! Where are your ethics and morals? Sharing images of the victim.. .. How insensitive are you! Give the families some space, let them mourn! Stop surrounding them with your cameras and mics. As a father of two girls, my heart goes out to the families, I hope they find the strength to cope with the loss #PriyankaReddy and #Manasa deserve justice.

BVS Ravi: Priyanka episode is as gore or if not more than Nirbhaya. It reflects lack of safety for women as well as lack of fear for law. Root cause is wrong brought up from childhood and reforms should start from training parenting on how to bring up sons for the society.

Adivi Sesh: Our ability to look after our Mothers, Daughters and Sisters determines our worth as a nation. And we are failing. I think of change. But I dont know what change to bring to remove such evil from the hearts of these monsters. Something needs to be done. And we are failing.

Varun Sandesh: What a horrifying incident.. So sad to hear about Priyanka Reddy being kidnapped.. raped.. n burnt alive.. I don't even know what punishment would be enough for the B*****ds who did this.. My condolences and prayers up for the family.. #RIPPriyankaReddy #JusticeForPriyankaReddy
