DGP urges Hyderabad police commissioner to review cases
Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) V Dinesh Reddy on Monday asked Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anurag Sharma to review cases registered in connection with violent incidents reported during the 'Telangana March' here on September 30.
Office bearers of Telangana Non-Gazetted Officers met the DGP and expressed concern about cases booked during the 'Telangana March'.
Later, the DGP asked the Hyderabad Police Commissioner to review these cases, according to a release from the DGP's office.
Hyderabad police have filed over 30 cases against Telangana activists for allegedly indulging in violence during the march and named Telangana-JAC chairman M Kodandaram among others in related cases on charge of continuing the protest at Sanjivaiah Park on Necklace Road, the venue of the 'Telangana March', beyond the permitted deadline.
Police also suspect the role of "left-wing extremists" in stirring up violence resulting in massive damage to properties and arson, as activists defied prohibitory orders and joined the 'Telangana march' for a separate state.
