Hyderabad: Mallisetty Bhanu Kiran, who is currently serving a life sentence in connection with the murder of Gangula Suryanarayana Reddy alias Maddelacheruvu Suri, a faction leader from Andhra Pradesh, has been convicted once again. In a separate case he was sentenced to three years of imprisonment for giving false information in an Arms Act case.
The Nampally criminal court also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Kiran, said senior assistant public prosecutor K.V Beena. City police had earlier arrested Kiran on charges of using a pistol in 2011 despite expiry of its license. The weapon was also seized from his possession.
