Doing the honours: Director General of Police K. Aravinda Rao inaugurating the Police Ministerial Staff Association Office in Hyderabad on Monday.
HYDERABAD: Director-General of Police, K. Aravind Rao said the Anantapur district police had launched a full-scale investigation into transportation of huge amount of money in a vehicle from Puttaparthi to Bangalore.
It may be recalled that a vehicle carrying about Rs. 35 lakh was intercepted at the Kodikonda integrated check-post on the inter-State border in Anantapur district on Saturday night.
Refusing to respond to a question on who was behind the transfer of huge cash, Mr. Rao said the Superintendent of Police was personally monitoring the investigation and that they would get to the bottom of the matter soon. He dismissed as mere speculation the names of members of the Sri Satya Sai Central Trust that were doing the rounds in this regard and said he would be able to say more only after ascertaining facts.
Earlier, the DGP inaugurated the office building of the Andhra Pradesh Police Ministerial Staff Association. Among others present were association president Dokka Sekhar Babu, general secretary M.B. Malika and treasurer G. Ravinder.
They submitted a memorandum containing a long list of demands, most of them relating to service matters.
An important demand was that pertaining to the need for having 100 ministerial staff for every 1,000 police personnel.
When presspersons referred to the case involving the death under suspicious circumstances of Kiran Reddy, niece of Union Minister S. Jaipal Reddy, he said an investigation was launched and the police would know more only when the post-mortem report came in a day or two.
