Huge loss: The hydraulic excavator set afire by miscreants at Paidakulamadugu village in Dummugudem mandal of Khammam district on Tuesday.
KHAMMAM: Unidentified persons set afire a hydraulic excavator at Paidakulamadugu village in Dummugudem mandal in the wee hours of Tuesday. The local police ruled out the possibility of the involvement of Maoists in the incident.
According to information reaching here, miscreants set ablaze a hydraulic excavator after dousing it with an inflammable substance near the village in the wee hours of the day.
The machine was partially gutted. It was positioned at the village in connection with an ongoing irrigation canal related works, sources said.
Dummugudem SI M A Shukoor said that internal rivalry between two groups in the village is suspected to be the probable reason behind the incident. “It is not the act of extremists,” he said adding that efforts were under way to nab the culprits.
