"Ch. Rajesh (30), G. Laxman (28), K. Mondaiah (28) and G. Mallesham (31), belonging to Janshakti Dalam, were apprehended on the charge of murdering Congress leader and former chairman of Primary Agricultural Cooperative Credit Society, Prabhakar Rao," Sircilla DSP Damera Narsaiah said, adding a revolver was recovered from the accused.
