Car found floating in Sagar belonged to retired headmaster: Police

Son and daughter deliberately pushed vehicle inside waters

Hyderabad: Police on Saturday identified the owner of the brand new car that was found floating in the left canal of Sagar on Friday.

It was bought for Rs 20 lakh by a 65-year-old retired headmaster Ramanjaneyulu from Tipparthy in Nalgonda district as a gift for his son and daughter. However, following differences with their parents, the siblings, Vigneswari and Mallikarjun, who stay in Avanthipuram, Suryapet, drove the car to the left canal of Sagar in Vemulapalli police limits and pushed it into the waters.

Police personnel said that they had collected details of the vehicle based on the temporary registration (TR) number from the showroom staff.

"Vigneswari and Mallikarjun did it intentionally. Initially, suspecting that there could be someone inside the car, we took up a search operation. As it was already night, we left it submerged," said police officials.

Reportedly there were differences between the parents and their children. The siblings were not interested in their father's gift, police said.

Ramanjaneyulu said that his children were both post graduates and they had suddenly started visiting places of worship of a different religion. “Since then, they have started avoiding me and my wife and began living separately. I request the police to provide proper counselling to my children so that they could mend their ways," Ramanjaneyulu said.
