Inquiry ordered into Andhra murder suspects’ thrashing case

Condemning the act, the AP police chief directed the DIG (Anantapur Range) to initiate disciplinary action against the lady police officer and other policemen.

‘It is condemnable...I have asked the DIG (Anantapur Range) to initiate disciplinary action and we will take action,’ Prasada Rao said. The DIG will conduct an inquiry into the matter, he said.

The footage of the incident, which reportedly occurred on Saturday in Guntakal town of Anantapur district, was telecast on Sunday by local news channels that showed a police team led by DSP Supraja and other police personnel beating up the four suspects in full public view.

Police picked up one Sekhar for allegedly murdering his father-in-law Mallaiah (65), along with his accomplices Somu, Peddanna alias Peddi and Hussain, on 27 November at Old Bus Stand in the town.
They took all the four suspects to the place of crime.
