Nizamabad (AP): A village-head belonging to
the Telugu Desam Party was allegedly burnt alive by
unidentified persons at his residence in Jalalpur village,
police said on Wednesday.
The incident took place late last night and badly charred
body of Darma Prasad Rao alias Mahinder Reddy was found today,
they said.
The miscreants threw some inflammable substance on the
house where Reddy was sleeping and set it afire, police
said, adding other family members of the victim were not
present in the house at the time of the incident.

Police suspect a recent tiff between Rao and some village
youth over gambling at public place may have led to the tragic
incident.
