Why did he not give the investigative authorities details of the investigation into the murder in Viveka, asks DIG
The official spokesman for the Andhra Pradesh police and DIG (technical service) G. Palaraju said on Sunday that the former director general (secret service) AB Venkateswara Rao had put pressure on the police officers to keep the family members of Prime Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and to arrest relatives without proper evidence in YS Vivekananda Reddy’s murder.
In front of the media in the DGP office, Palaraju accused the former chief of intelligence of having published the investigation report into the sensational case and criticized the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which was investigating the murder of the former MP.
Mr Venkateswara Rao should clarify why he did not give the details of the investigation to the Special Investigation Team (SIT), which had investigated the case for about nine months before referring it to the CBI, Mr Palaraju said.
Mr Palaraju stated that the former intelligence chief had made maximum efforts to book Mr Jagan’s family members Mohan Reddy on the case.
“If the IPS officer had important information, why didn’t he pass it on to the investigative authorities? He can be booked for breach of duty under IPC Section 201 (which causes the disappearance of evidence of a crime), ”Palaraju said.
The former intelligence DG should also clarify why he had the investigation report with him for two years instead of submitting it to the CBI in a sealed envelope according to the procedure, Palaraju said.
RN Ammireddy, a member of the IPS Officers’ Association, was present among others.
