MACHILIPATNAM: A youth who was moving rousing suspicion that he might the syringe psycho was overpowered by people in Sagguru in Agiripalli mandal in the district on Tuesday.
According to police, people of the village turned him over to police on suspicion that he was the syringe psycho. While searching his bag, they found a syringe in it. They then beat him up.
Agiripalli Sub-Inspector of Police V Rajendra Prasad said that he did not think he was the syringe psycho whom the police have been hunting. “This person appears to have lost mental balance. When we searched his bag, we found pieces of paper, rags and one syringe. It seems he was picking up articles that were thrown on the road just like that. He does not appear to be a local. He may have been from Tamil Nadu,” the Sub-Inspector said.
He said that the police would produce the youth before Tahsildar on Wednesday and decide on what should be done further in the case.
