ELURU:  In a major breakthrough, the police on Saturday found CCTV footage of the alleged injection psycho, who had been spreading a wild scare across the Telugu states, particularly in West Godavari district, over the past three weeks. They suspect him to be from one of the towns in the district and are on the lookout to nab him.

Though the first attack by the psycho was on a schoolgirl at Yandagandi Bridge followed by another attack on an Intermediate girl in Yandagandi village on August 22, the police stumbled upon crucial evidence while investigating the cases at places where he attacked three persons in separate incidents on August 25. The police made a thorough check of the CCTV cameras available in the areas, which helped them zero in on the suspect.

Senior police officers involved in the investigation told Express that the victims provided them with a detailed description of the accused which, in turn, helped them create his sketch. “We were informed that the miscreant was using a black motorcycle and was wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans. He was aged between 25 and 30 years. We started examining the footage retrieved from all possible CCTV cameras in the areas,” a police officer said.

While checking the footage at Goranamudi, Kumudavalli and Vendra villages in Undi mandal, the police found that there was only one person with the given description in all three places. Video footage from over 50 CCTV cameras belonging to various establishments was checked.

The police suspect that he is from a town because, they felt, in a village he could not have remained undetected. “We are searching for him and are confident to nab him shortly,” said Narsapuram DySP Sowmya Latha.
