The State Human Rights Commission has issued a warrant for the arrest of the Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO) of Ongole and his production before it by July 9.

The Commission ordered the Superintendent of Police of Prakasam to execute the warrant. It was stated that the Commission had sought report from the RDO on a complaint by villagers from five habitations that submerged under the Gundlakamma project about lack of compensation for lands lost. But, the official did not respond despite four reminders. As the last notice also went blank, the SHRC issued the arrest warrant this time.
