Accident, not murder, says Collector

Collector N. Satyanarayana has said that K. Sailu, who died under suspicious conditions at Karegam in Pitlam mandal, was not a village revenue assistant and he had nothing to do with the government.

When there was no sand quarry at all at Kaki vagu or Nallavagu at Karegam, how could sand mafia mine sand? Sailu, who was reported to be a VRA, was killed in the road accident and it was not a murder, he said at a joint press conference, here on Friday. He spoke in an emergency press meet after visiting the spot along with the SP N. Swetha.

Ms. Swetha said that Sailu was in an inebriated condition and it was not known then if he was run over by the brick-laden tractor after he fell down or hit by the vehicle while walking on the road. The blood serum was sent to Forensic Science Laboratory. Investigation would be based on the result, she said.
