ADGP Alok Kumar on Wednesday informed that the three main accused in the murder case of BJYM leader Praveen Nettaru are still at large and efforts are on to nab them at the earliest.
Briefing reporters here after holding a high-level meeting with senior police officials to review the probe into the case, the ADGP said “We know those three assailants, we have their photos, know their houses, their parents and wives. They are shifting quickly from one place to another, which is why there is a delay in arresting them.”
“It was a planned attack. The assailants fled after committing the crime. We are trying to locate them. We will serve a warrant against the absconders, seize their properties and initiate various other actions,” Kumar added.
However, some people are aiding the absconding assailants by giving them refuge.
