KARIMNAGAR: CI C Vijaraj and Jagitial rural police have cracked a murder case after they dug out the dead body of a man, who has been missing for over 50 days.

The body of Chirra Pratap was unearthed from Myadapalli village in Malyal mandal on Tuesday.

According to police, Pratap was killed by Dindu Vishnuvardhan (28) and his henchmen Pochamallu and Gangadhar. The contract killers were hired by Donakonda Shekar, the sarpanch of BB Rajpalli in Gollapalli mandal. Pratap had attacked the sarpanch’s father last year and ever since then, Shekar has held a grudge against Pratap.

The Sarpanch hired the hitmen, assuring that a payment of `10 lakh and an acre of land for the deed. However, the village head paid the killers only `3 lakh after the murder and told them that he will make the payment in installments. Irked, Vishnuvardhan and gang threatened the sarpanch in a bid to coerce him into paying them. Fearing for his life, Shekar surrendered to the police voluntarily to escape the death threat.

Police took Vishnuvardhan into custody and he confessed to his crime and revealed where they buried Pratap’s body.
