GUNTUR: With the State Government keen on setting up an urban police district in Guntur, the ball has been set rolling to find suitable land.

Top brass of the State police on Monday scouted for lands in and around the district. Additional Director General of Police (Organisation) Shreeram Tiwari along with Inspector General of Police (Organisation) J.V. Ramulu, Guntur Range I.G KRM Kishore Kumar and S.P Shankha Brata Bagchi inspected a 12-acre plot near Karmika Sankshema Bhavan and later a 40-acre plot near Vadlamudi. Some officers were of the view that in view of the rapid development of Guntur, it might be upgraded into a Police Commissionerate and hence a larger plot would be necessary.
