Circle Inspector (CI) of Nalgonda Two Town police Venkateswarlu has been absconding since this morning. He has handed over his weapon and office SIM to his driver Malla Reddy and has gone underground. The CI has been appointed as the investigation officer into the murder of Bodepalli Srinivas, husband of Nalgonda Municipal Chairperson Lakshmi. He rounded up nearly 11 suspects in the case and sent them to remand. Recently, the civic chief has filed a petition in the High Court (HC) demanding CBI probe into her husband's death. The HC has demanded a counter from Venkateswarlu. All this might have pressurised him to go missing, it is suspected.
