Khammam: The increasing intermittent explosive disorder (IED), a behavioural disorder characterised by explosive outbursts of anger and often to the point of rage, is the reason for the increasing killings of spouses, brothers and other blood relations in the district. Though the accused attribute the reasons such as extramarital relationships and the like, these persons are losing their restraint because of IED. Persons, who are suffering from IED, come to the conclusion in speedily on the things happened in front of them and would not go for logical analysis. About 1,275 cases were filed in 2014 pertaining to women.
Over 10 per cent of the persons, involved in these crimes, are suffering from IED. N. Sundar Rao, a psychiatrist said, “There is no measurement of the IED of these persons because they would not approach a psychiatrist at any cost. These people are not aware of such disorders,”
About 37 women were killed out of 1,275 crimes that took place in 2014 and six women were murdered for minor reasons. Recently, a person killed his elder brother and his sister just because the two caused a dispute between him and his wife. The accused also came to the speedy conclusion that he would get a job in SCCL on compassionate grounds in case his brother was killed. The youth, who is accustomed to alcohol, has poor ability to manage anger. These persons are unable to accept the advice given by their spouses and kill spontaneously without any thought. A woman killed her husband Krishnaiah for suspecting her character in Assanna-gudem under Dammapet mandal. P. Samuel, a psychiatrist said that family members should recognise the anger tendencies and bring them to psychiatrists for treatment.
