Hyderabad: Defunct CC cameras at Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya's house have delayed the investigation in tracing the stolen mobile of the Minister from his residence. "The mobile phone has not been switched on after it was stolen and we are worried about the misuse of important contacts and other data stored in the phone," the police said.

The Minister’s new phone was stolen from his residence at Ramnagar at 8.30 am on Sunday. There were 30 visitors at the Minister’s residence on Sunday, the police said earlier. A case was lodged at Musheerabad police station and two special teams were formed for investigation by the Hyderabad City Police.

Sources said though the Minister’s men provided CC camera footage to the police for investigation, the cameras were defunct for the past one week and the police did not find any clue with that footage.

The footage collected from the cameras installed at Srinivasa Textiles, located opposite to the Minister’s residence also did not provide any leads to the police to take up the investigation further, said the sources.

Sources said that the Minister’s men wanted not to block the SIM card, as it would not give an alert when the mobile was switched on.

Answering to a query, Central Zone DCP VB Kamalasan Reddy said, “No clues are identified yet. The mobile is still switched off and our teams are on the job to trace the mobile soon.”
