Hyderabad: In less than a week after the bid on the life of Chandrayangutta MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi by his rivals in Barkas, Chandrayangutta inspector P Venkatagiri was transferred to the counter-intelligence wing.
Hyderabad police commissioner AK Khan on Thursday issued transfer orders after several allegations that police were mute spectators and failed to prevent the attack. There were also allegations that police reacted slowly after the incident.
The video footage of the attack aired on some channels showed that police did not even try to shift the legislator to the hospital or even help party workers who were shifting him.
After the incident, the police commissioner issued memos to the inspector and sub-inspector of Chandrayangutta. Based on preliminary inquiry, the inspector has been transferred. TOI
