Visakhapatnam: K Roopa, wife of slain TDP ward president Kilaparthi Appala Naidu, demanded a CBI inquiry into the death of her husband, who was murdered by unknown persons at Tatchetlapalem on July 12 this year.
She told reporters here on Wednesday that the main accused, Pyla Mutyalanaidu, was arrested and released immediately ‘succumbing’ to political pressure. Ms Roopa alleged that when the police were not able to nab Siriki Venkata Ramana, who had hatched the plot, he surrendered himself in the court with the help of some ‘big’ leaders. She further said that the accused had confessed during the police investigation that Siriki Venkata Ramana gave Rs 5 lakh for committing the murder adding that they had no conflicts with Siriki Venkata Ramana. Soon after the death of her husband, former TDP corporator Muthyalanaidu started participating in all party affairs actively, she pointed out.
Ms Roopa said that she had sent a representation to Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu seeking his intervention to order a CBI inquiry into the incident and to take action as per law against Muthyalanaidu, who was shown as ‘A-1’ in the FIR filed by the police, and his henchmen. Though BJP MLA P Vishnukumar Raju was supporting the slain family, the police did not arrest Mutyalanaidu so far as he was being supported by Minister Ch. Ayyanna Patrudu, she alleged.
