"We hope you will understand the anxiety of a family who is kept in dark for 12 days when a member is lodged in a hospital in a grave condition," the letter reads.

On July 15, when Rao's family visited him in the hospital, they found him lying "like an orphan" on a urine-soaked bed in the transit ward.

"Yesterday evening was a scary call. When Hemalata asked him how was he, he couldn't even understand the question, and started talking about his father's funeral, which happened 75 years ago."

"Varavara Rao has been hallucinating. He has not been able to walk on his own, brush on his own. He needs assistance. Our immediate demand is to get him better treatment."
"Don't kill him in jail," #VaraVararao's tearful nephew says.
