After a senior manager at Axis Bank filed a complaint with the Telangana State Director General of Police, Ravi Gupta, on Thursday. Police suspended R Srinivas, the circle inspector at RGI Airport Police Station.
Complainant Naragani Yasaswi (26) accused Rapolu Srinivas, of power misuse, extortion, and lodging a false FIR.
Yasaswi claimed that her mother, a real estate agent, was wrongfully charged by an investor, Mandava Sharada (another real estate agent), both living in Myhome Bhooja apartments in April 2023.
According to the complaint, Mandava Sharada allegedly conspired with Inspector Srinivas, leading to her mother’s arrest in August. “Acting in connivance with Mandava Sharada, the Inspector of Police, RGI airport, Rapolu Srinivas, registered an FIR No 367 of 2023, threatened my mother to cough up a ransom to settle the matter with Sharada. Upon her refusal, she was arrested and remanded to judicial custody on 4.8.2023 in said crime by adding section 5 of the Telangana Protection of Depositors and Financial Establishments Act,” the complaint read.
The inspector is also accused of publicly sharing demeaning photographs and statements of her mother. “Inspector of Police R Srinivas put handcuffs, took photographs and released the same to the de facto complainant Sharada and she in turn circulated them on social media,” Yasaswi said.
The complaint further said that Yasaswi’s brother, Girish Kumar, was arrested despite no financial dealings with Sharada. It said that his overnight detention in lockup aggravated his chronic asthma.
My brother Girish Kumar was on July 10 and the entire night, he was kept in lockup. My brother is a chronic asthma patient and when he was kept in lockup, he requested the duty officers to keep him outside the lockup, but the ruthless police personnel did not heed his request due to which his health deteriorated,” the complaint said.
