Corporator in police custody

Azadnagar corporator Gowramma, who was arrested by the City police, in connection with the Lingaraju murder case on Wednesday morning at Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu, was produced before the I ACMM Court Thursday morning.

As the police sought her custody submitting that they need more time for the investigation, Justice Venkatesh R Hulagi remanded her to police custody for three days.

Lingaraju was hacked to death on November 20 by a gang that was allegedly hired by Gowramma’s husband Govindaraju. The murder was said to be a revenge killing as Lingaraju had lodged a complaint against Gowramma and Govindaraju with the Lokayukta police.

A special team from Chamarajpet police station arrested Gowramma.
