Hyderabad: Four days after Congress leader Vikram Goud was mysteriously shot at his residence, the investigations carried out in the case indicate the firing was self-inflicted and was done on purpose to get aid from his former minister father Mukesh Goud.
The ballistics reports also revealed the firing was from an extremely close range and now the Police are even more sure about the alleged crime since the CCTV footage doesn’t prove any suspicious activity near the leader’s residence.
Now the Police are likely to drop the charges of attempt to murder from the lodged FIR in Vikram’s case since none of the statements of Vikram and his wife nor the investigations prove there was an attempt to murder the leader.
“The probe team is yet to get a convincing explanation from Vikram Goud. He has been evading many questions and giving only one line answers claiming that he was attacked. But there is no circumstantial evidence to back up his claims,” said a West Cone Senior Police official.
Police strongly suspects that Vikram was not shot by anyone else but he shot himself in order to get aid for his finances. The official said, “If it is proven that he shot himself there will be a case against him as he does not have a license to use a firearm”.
The Police are now searching for the crime weapon used for the firing. The Police is of the opinion that once the weapon is recovered it could be proved that this was not an attempt to murder case as claimed by the leader.
