Benefits to constable still ‘under process’: DGP

Staff Reporter

NELLORE: Director-General of Police S. S. P. Yadav has said that the police had extended a few benefits to the parents of the slain constable Anakarla Keshavulu, who was killed by Maoists in Chitrakonda on June 29. Some benefits were still ‘under process.’

Responding to the report on the plight of the constable’s parents published in these columns on Tuesday, the DGP said the District Collector had been asked to pursue the matter.

In a statement, the DGP said the last pay drawn of Rs 8,584 was being paid to Keshavulu’s father, A Chennaiah. Ex gratia of Rs 9 lakh, leave encashment of Rs 15,350, group insurance amount of Rs 15,000 and corpus fund of Rs 40,000 have already been paid to the family besides Rs 1 lakh towards ‘Bhadratha’ ex gratia through a cheque on September 11, 2008.

Insurance claims

Mr Yadav said additional ‘Bhadratha’ ex gratia of Rs 1 lakh, due to death in violence, is awaited from United Insurance Company, Greyhounds insurance of Rs 2 lakh and police group insurance of Rs 1 lakh were awaited from Oriental Insurance Company, for which claims have been made in August this year.

Parents of Keshavulu, however, gave a totally different picture.

When contacted, they said that they had not received any amount except Rs 9 lakh as ex gratia and Rs 1 lakh under the ‘Bhadratha’ scheme.

“A few days ago, we received a cheque for Rs 15,000, but the name of Chennaiah was wrongly spelt on it. We returned the cheque and we have not received it till date.”

“We have not received the leave encashment, group insurance amount and the corpus fund so far. We are getting about Rs 6,500 every month.”

“A police officer telephoned us from Hyderabad today and asked us to come to collect some amount at the office,” said Penchalamma.

Superintendent of Police B. Malla Reddy said he would visit Chennaiah’s house soon and enquire about the problems.
