It is known that the IT officials conducted searches in the houses of Mallareddy’s family, relatives and close friends. The controversy started when the authorities got Mallar Reddy’s eldest son Mahender Reddy, who was being treated in the hospital, to sign the panchanama related to this. Mallareddy lodged a complaint against Ratnakar at Boinpally police station on Thursday night. Two hours later, Ratnakar also filed another complaint in the same PS. In it, it is stated that Mallareddy and others who stopped him at the hospital stole the laptop.
Dramatic developments took place while both the complaints were with the police. Boyinpally police station has already gone under the control of central forces. In that case, some people came in a car and tried to hand over the laptop at the police station. As that was not possible, they left. After a while another youth came on a two-wheeler. The gates of the police station were already locked. The youth tried to hand over the laptop to the police. When they refused, he left them at the gate. The entire commotion was recorded by the IT officials on their phones. The police took the laptop left on the road to the police station and showed it to the IT officials. The IT officials insisted that the matter of whose it was should be set aside and how it came to the police station in the first place.
As the laptop incident took place at Suraram Hospital, the cases registered with the complaints of Mallareddy and IT officer Ratnakar were transferred to Dundigal police station, but the laptop remained in Boinpally police station. Although it is believed to be IT officer Ratnakar’s personal laptop, no one including him has confirmed it. First of all, where is it from? The IT officials make it clear that they will tell the rest of the matter only when it is clarified how it came about.
Although the police initially thought that they would turn on the laptop and see who it was, they were afraid that if they did so, there would be a risk of a dispute related to the data. It is against this background that they are planning to send the laptop to FSL and open it with the permission of the court. However, since none of the IT officials and Mallareddy’s followers came till Friday night, who actually owns that laptop? Who is locked from the authorities? Who brought back another? Who brought another laptop after leaving with CRPF warning? Beyond all this, what’s in an actual laptop? It remains to be seen.
