Four Arrests Made in Araku MLA Murder Case

Andhra Pradesh police arrested four individuals including a former Mandal Parishad Territorial Constituency (MPTC) member in relation to the Araku MLA murder case. 

The four arrested allegedly provided logistical support to the Naxals in killings of the Araku MLA Kidari Sarveswara Rao and ex- MLA Siveri Soma last month in Livitput village, Visakhapatnam. 

Addressing the media, police informed that the arrested accused had provided food and shelter to the Naxalites along with sharing information on the movements of the MLA. The arrested were revealed as Yedala Subba Rao, Sobhan, Kamala and Eswari.

“In our investigation, it is revealed that the four persons provided vital information about the movement of the two TDP leaders to the Maoists on September 21 and 22. Maoists of Nandapur and Narayanapatna area committees, led by Maoist top leader Venkata Ravi Chaitanya alias Aruna of Nandapur Dalam, came to Livitiput and took shelter in the houses of Maoist sympathisers a couple of days before September 23,” said DCP K. Fakeerappa

The police denied the reason of killings to be illegal mining as alleged and said that 10 kgs of explosives along with 20 metres of electric wires were also recovered from the four.
