Vijaya Rao was posted as Guntur Urban SP reportedly based on the intelligence alert that he is a converted Christian and may face difficulty to perform duties at Hindu shrine Tirumala. Similarly, Anantapur SP S V Rajasekhar Babu was posted as Chittoor SP two days ago and he was also given an additional charge as Chief Vigilance and Security Officer (CVSO) of the TTD.
