Firebrand Congress legislator and former minister P Shankar Rao has once again to meet a team of CID officials who are investigating into the alleged excesses committed by policemen who went his residence here a few days ago to pick him up for interrogation in a land-grab case.
Shankar Rao is currently undergoing treatment at a private hospital in the city after he fell ill when he was taken to the Neredmet police station for questioning in the Greenfields land case last week.
Additional DG (CID) Krishna Prasad is investigating into the manner in which Shankar Rao was treated while moving him to the police station from his Musheerabad residence.
A team of CID officials went to the hospital on Tuesday to record his statement but the MLA bluntly turned them away stating that he would not speak to them.
He is believed to have demanded a probe by the CBI, not the CID, into the shabby treatment meted out to him by the police.
This is the second time that CID sleuths have tried to seek information from Shankar Rao without success.
The CID officials said they would question the Neredmet police after speaking with Shankar Rao.
It is learnt that the CID is likely to seek more time to complete the investigation into the issue with Shankar Rao not cooperating with them.
The CID was given one week’s time to submit a report to the government.
Earlier in the day, Dinesh Reddy who visited the model police station at Banjara Hills, told reporters that action would be taken basing on the CID report if it was found that the police behaved shabbily with the senior legislator.
With respect to the cases against TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao, the DGP said local police would look into the issue.
