First SIT meeting held

Meanwhile the Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by Rachakonda Commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat held their first meeting at latter’s office in Neredmet. During the meeting which continued for more than 2 hours, the investigators discussed various issues -- including when to record statements of the witnesses. All the files related to the case were transferred to the Commissionerate. The SIT is expected to submit their findings within one month. It is unlikely that the newly constituted SIT would have a dedicated office. They are willing to probe from Rachakonda commissionerate.

The constitution of a SIT for investigating the case was recommended by the Director General of Police in a letter to the government informing about a gruesome incident of rape and murder of the vet and death of the four accused in an exchange of fire with the police while they were taken for reconstruction of the crime scene at Chatanpalli near Shadnagar.
