The Visakhapatnam police have also approached the AP High Court seeking its consent for the arrest of a Bheemili court judge for his alleged involvement in the case



VISAKHAPATNAM: The Visakhapatnam police have arrested a woman Sub-Inspector and a car driver, in connection with the case of attempted murder of a local real estate businessman. The city police have also approached the Andhra Pradesh High Court seeking its consent for the arrest of a Bheemili court judge for alleged involvement in the case.

Nagamani, woman Sub-Inspector of Anandapuram Police Station, and the driver of the judge's car were arrested on Saturday in Odisha where they were hiding. The latest arrests came after three months of investigation and search operations for the absconding accused persons in the sensational case. Vizag City Police Commissioner Ch. Srikanth confirmed the arrests to newstap.in with a terse affirmative, without going into the details of the case.

Simultaneously, the Maharanipeta police have moved the Andhra Pradesh High Court seeking its permission to arrest the Bheemili Court's first additional junior civil judge and the metropolitan magistrate in the case. The police, in their investigation, have reportedly found prima facie evidence pointing to the alleged involvement of the judge in the case.

The Bheemili court judge and the sub-inspector, besides others, were booked under Section 307 of IPC for attempt to murder besides other relevant sections in the month of July. According to some reports, citing information from the police, the magistrate and the Sub-Inspector are sisters and had their alleged complicity in the attempt to murder case.

Two motorcycle-born persons attacked Rajesh, the real estate businessman from behind with an iron hammer under the Maharanipeta police limits on June 18. Despite suffering injuries, Rajesh survived the attack and was treated at the KGH here.

Rajesh was known to be a close associate of the two influential sisters. Relations reportedly turned sour after financial and land disputes cropped up between them. In his complaint, Rajesh alleged that he was attacked from behind with an iron hammer on June 18. The police, back in July, also booked the magistrate's husband for extending logistic support to the accused for the attack. The sisters were absconding ever since the case was registered against them. After eluding the police for three months, Nagamani was apprehended in Odisha along with her sister's car driver Appala Reddy.
