WARANGAL: For the first time in the state, the Warangal police, in their bid to conduct focused investigation of cases filed against land encroachment, set up a special investigative cell headed by an ACP rank officer and two inspectors to carry out the probe.
Police commissioner V. Ravinder said, “In view of the increasing number of cases of land encroachment, we decided to take this initiative to put a stop the forgery and creation of fake land documents”.
Mr Ravinder said that they had arrested a rowdy sheeter, Bommati Vikram, who was involved in threatening people to assist those encroaching lands.
“During a regular vehicle check, the task force wing officials found the accused travelling suspiciously in an auto near the Kakatiya Degree College. Upon frisking him, they found two knives in his possession. Further investigation revealed that Vikram was an accused in a case related to a land issue where he had threatened to kill one Satish, a resident of Warangal, and also damaged his car. We are yet to complete the investigation. We need to take him into police custody on PT warrant from remand. We will file cases under the PD act against the accused,” he said.
Bommati Vikram is also an accused in the murder of corporator Anishetty Murali in 2017. Central Zone DCP Narasimha, Taskforce ACP Chakravarthi, Hanamkonda ACP Sridhar, inspectors Nandiram Naik and others were present....
