Report on item No. 2.
With regard to news item in Eenadu daily Dt. 26-3-2002 under the Caption “Artharathri Veedullo Parugu” the following is the report of Commandant XII Bnt.Nalgonda.
Sri Venkataiah and his wife Sambbamma went to STD booth at DVK Bus stage on the night of 24.03.2002 to pass on a message to his daughter in Tenali, about the death of a girl. After passing on the message while they were proceeding to home, Sri G. Srinivasa Rao, RI. Of 12th Bn. Offered lift to Venkataiah to drop at home. But he refused on the reason that his wife is accompaying him. On proceeding to some distance Sri G. Srinivasa Rao, RI asked Sambamma to sit on his rear side of the scooter along with her husband to drop them at their home. She also refused the offer and ranaway due to fear. On seeing them the local people tried to catch RI Sri G. Srinivasa Rao, but he fled away on scooter.
During the enquiry, Sri G. Srinivasa Rao has stated that when he came to know at Telephone Booth that a girl who is staying with Venkataiah was dead he offered to drop, them at their house, on humanitarian grounds but not with any malafide intensions but “Eenadu“ reporter has exaggereted the facts and defamed the APSP force. It is also revealed during enquiry that Sri G. Srinivasa Rao, R.I, was not in drunken state.
However RI Sri G. Srinivasa Rao was transferred to 9th Bn. APSP, Venkatagiri and he is being dealt on charge (minor punishment roll) by DIG III Bns. Kurnool for his reprehensible conduct in asking a lonely women to sit on his scooter without any request from her that too in the night time.
