The Hyderabad police were probing the alleged involvement of an IAS officer’s son in the murder of his father’s driver.
Following the complaint by the victim’s wife, the police detained Venkat Sukrat, son of Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer G. Venkateswara Rao, here for questioning.
Bhukya Nagaraju (40) was allegedly murdered on March 17 in the penthouse of Sai Kalyan Residency Apartments at Yousufguda.
Nagaraju and another youth, suspected to be Sukrat, had gone to the penthouse on the evening of March 17. However, only the youth came down and left the apartments.
On Sunday, the residents of the apartments grew suspicious about foul smell emanating from the penthouse. The body of Nagaraju was found in a gunny bag in the apartment.
The Hyderabad police said they were screening the CCTV footage at the apartment building.
