Police Role In Naresh’s Murder Investigations Suspicious
Hyderabad: The murder case of Amboji Naresh belonging to Yadadri-Bhuvanagiri district is getting murkier as allegations against the local police are mounting. Since the police could not break the mystery of Naresh’s disappearance till High Court intervened, people are suspecting their intentions.
Until the Rachakonda Commissioner Mahesh Bhagavat deployed special teams for investigation, the murder of Naresh did not come to light. As the investigating officers ignored the vital clues in the mysterious disappearance of Naresh, their intentions are suspected by police.
Naresh came to Bhuvanagiri along with his wife Swati from Mumbai on May 2. He had sent Swathi along with her father. Suspecting that she might be ill-treated, he followed her father’s car.
It is being said that Naresh went on a two-wheeler from Bhuvanagiri. He must have collected his friend either from Bhuvanagiri or from the outskirts of Lingarajupalli, the native place of Swati. Naresh had sent his friend to her place and stayed back at the outskirts.
Srinivasa Reddy who observed Naresh’s friend loitering there, followed him along with his nephew. As soon as they found Naresh on the outskirts, they murdered him. This was confirmed by the Commissioner too. He also stated that they are yet to identify the person wearing a white shirt. This friend of Naresh is a crucial witness in the case. But the police could not identify who he is till now.
The family members of Naresh complained in Bhuvanagiri Police Station on May 6. The Bhuvanagiri police stated that they found out that the mobile phone of Naresh was switched off at Moulali; which means, they might have also realised that Naresh had gone to Lingarajupalli. If the police had questioned Srinivasa Reddy then itself, the case would have been solved. It is also surprising that police did not even find out with whom Naresh spoke over his mobile in Bhuvangiri. When they could find out the cell tower location of Naresh, they should also track the details of another mobile too. If they had identified the person and investigated, the case would have been different.
Police ignoring such small but important facts only shows the shallowness of their investigation. It could also be a case of complicity. There is criticism that police are not taking several cases seriously. They are not investigating unless officials order them. Now, it is up to the officials to decide whether to motivate their force or not.
