HYDERABAD: A division bench of the High Court comprising justice VVS Rao and justice Ramesh Ranganathan on Friday issued a non-bailable warrant against former commissioner of Rajahmundry municipal corporation K Manikya Raj. The NBW follows failure of the official to appear in court pursuant to the court’s directions. The former municipal commissioner was required to be present in court in a contempt case relating to a complaint that names of various streets in Rajahmundry were being changed and replaced with names of unsocial elements without following the procedure. In the contempt petition it was contended that the civic authorities concerned had not followed the procedure in spite of the court’s directions. The bench was informed that the official concerned could not make it as he was on poll duty in Uttar Pradesh. The bench pointed out that there was not even an application seeking exemption from personal appearance.
