Hyderabad police patrol teams miss the killers?
Amid allegations that their response was not swift, Hyberabad police are now introspecting if they failed to prevent the gory rape and murder of the 27-year-old woman veterinarian.
Section in-charge of the RGIA police station, Venugopal Reddy was the first policeman who interacted with the family. On learning about the incident, he informed the night round officer Satyam, a head constable.
The HC and a Blue Colt patrolling team first went to the Kishanguda toll plaza. As no clue was available there, they drove to the Thondupally toll plaza point where the woman was actually abducted.
Though they examined video footage of the surveillance cameras there, nothing suspicious could be found. There, the Shamshabad Night Division Round Officer Ravi Kumar, sub-inspector of Shamshabad, joined them. The SI told them if the woman was abducted from that point, the crime would come under Shamshabad rural police station, police higher-ups said.
Later, the victim’s family came back to the RGIA police station and left, stating that they would come back to file a formal complaint, Shamshabad ACP Ashok Goud said.
My daughter is very innocent. I want the accused to be burnt alive. We were not aware that she made a call to my younger daughter informing her that a few strangers had taken her bike away saying the tyre had punctured,’’ the woman’s mother said.
