Kollu Ravindra arrested at Tuni
Former Minister Kollu Ravindra, who has been in absconding in a murder case is arrested near Tuni.
Ravindra has been in absconding since he was named by the Machilipatnam police in the murder case of YSRCP leader Moka Bhaskara Rao. A police team went to his house here on Friday but they couldnot find him.
Ravindra was named in the sensational murder case based on the revelations made by other accused who were already arrested in the case.
Police have registered a case against him under sections 109,302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Following Ravindra’s vanishing act, the police have stepped up their search operations by deploying additional teams to apprehend him.
Two persons, former TDP counselor Chintha Chinni, and his cousin Chintha Nancharaiah have so far been arrested in connection with the case.
Based on the revelations made by the two, the police also named Kollu Ravindra, who was the Welfare and Fisheries Minister during the TDP rule. Besides Ravindra, the role of many local TDP leaders is also being suspected in the killing of YSRCP leader Moka Bhaskara Rao.
Bhaskara Rao, who was the Market Yard Committee chairman, was repeatedly stabbed with a knife coated with cyanide in broad daylight in the fish market of Machilipatnam on June 30.
