Hyderabad, March 31

Telangana Police have arrested a “habitual offender” who allegedly impersonated as Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s personal assistant and duped several people to the tune of Rs 3 crore.  

Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar said that the accused A Sudhakar, was arrested in a joint operation carried out by North Zone team along with Hyderabad’s SR Nagar police. 

The accused had duped victims, numbering between 80 to 100, with assurances of government housing allotments, police department jobs and gold at cheaper rates, authorities said. 

“Posing as an employee in the CM’s office, Sudhakar created fake IDs of PA to CM and OSD. The accused engaged two persons, S Nagaraju and B Bheemaiah, to dress in safari suits and carry fake guns to give the impression of his official security guards, and travelled in a Fortuner car,” the police commissioner said.
