HYDERABAD: On a day when chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao heaped praises on police for people-friendly policing, a 26-year-old man from Lingala in Nagarkurnool district, Katravath Lokya Naik came all the way to the the state police headquarters in Hyderabad with the sole purpose of complaining against the local police for not registering his complaint.

A few months ago, DGP Anurag Sharma himself pointed out that complainants are coming all the way to his office as the local police were not taking their complaints.

In an indication that nothing has changed much since then, Naik failed to get his case registered by Lingala police and  so came to the DGP’s office in Hyderabad. However, with no senior officials present, Naik was asked to approach the CBI by the constables posted at the DGP office. Naik’s case relates to a case where Rs 10 lakh was fraudulently withdrawn from his brother’s insurance amount. Naik, in his complaint, stated that in 2016, his eldest brother Katravath Lalu was seriously ill with TB. 

One person Karnakota Raju approached his father Niranjan and convinced him to take an insurance policy in the name of Lalu. “Raju collected all the required documents and got a policy for him. Lalu died on June 3, 2016 and the family received a letter from the insurance company on March 31, 2017 stating that the insurance company has paid Rs 4.85 lakh as insurance amount,’’ Lokya Naik said. 

Niranjan contacted Raju and questioned him that why he did not give the amount paid by the insurance company. Later Lokya Naik found that Raju forged the signatures of his father and opened an account in Axis Bank, Mahbunagar. 

‘‘We have collected the bank statement and found that Raju has collected another Rs 5 lakh from another insurance company. Raju has gone to the extent of changing the date of death of my brother in the death certificate as Sept 26, 2016 where in fact, my brother died on June 3, 2016,’’ he said.
