As the ancient building, which houses the police station, is on the verge of collapse, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) authorities have begun the process of getting the premises of this heritage structure vacated.
Animal Husbandry minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav visited the police station on Friday afternoon and inspected the building. After interacting with the police personnel there, he asked them to immediately vacate the building. During the interaction with the minister, the cops recalled their bitter and sweet memories attached with the old building.
