HYDERABAD: Following the death of a 23-year-old youth in custody, Rachakonda police commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat on Saturday said that action will be taken against the police personnel if they were found responsible for the death.

On Friday evening, Akkinepally Ganesh(23) and his friend Ramesh of Gudapur village in Nalgonda district, were detained by the patrolling party of Hayathnagar police station. Police said that Ganesh was carrying cutting pliers, cash, liquor bottles and other material used to break into houses and was involved in an offence at Hayathnagar.


During questioning, Ganesh claimed that he worked at Shiva Ganga Stone Crushers in Pillaipally and was just out with a friend. SI G Chandra Shekar had asked constables Yadagiri, Raju and Nagesh, to cross-check the suspect’s claims.

“At around 5 pm, the three constables and the suspect left for Pillaipally. After reaching the quarry and while walking towards it, Ganesh began to run from the police and accidentally fell in the quarry, which was quite deep. He was severely injured and was shifted to Sun Rise Hospital in Hayathnagar for treatment, but doctors declared him brought dead,” said Hayathnagar inspector J Narender Goud.


As the suspect died in police custody, a case has been booked under section 176 of CrPC and IPC 224. Police said that Ganesh was involved in 20 thefts and has been convicted in many cases.
