Hyderabad: Bhanu Kiran, prime suspect in the
killing of Maddelacheruvu Suryanarayana Reddy alias Suri, who
continued to evade the police might have fled out of Andhra
Pradesh, a top police official said on Friday.

"We are pursuing the Suri (murder) case. He (Bhanu) might
have gone out of Andhra Pradesh," State Director General of
Police K Aravinda Rao told reporters here.

Suri, a faction leader from Anantapur district in
Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh, who was the prime
accused in the murder of TDP MLA Paritala Ravi, was shot dead
by gunmen in his car in Yousufguda here on January 3 and
police strongly suspect Bhanu`s involvement in his murder.

Special police teams have already been despatched to
Bangalore and other places to nab Bhanu, who was also a close
aide of Suri. The police had yesterday searched the house of
Bhanu Kiran in Anantapur city and later sealed it.

The CCS police which has been investigating the case is
probing the fund deals and land deals involving Suri, a senior
police officer said.
