July 1, 2014 - Hyderabad
The First Additional Junior Civil Judge of Vijayawada on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant against Municipal Commissioner Chevvuri Hari Kiran.
An IAS officer of 2009 batch, Hari Kiran assumed charge as Commissioner last year. Municipal authorities had laid a road in the private property of one Jagan Mohan Rao at Ajit Singh nagar along with a pipeline as part of road expansion.
The victim Jagan Mohan Rao had gone to the court and the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation has agreed to offer land adjacent to his land and for that the Government approval is waited which did not materialized so far. Though this was happened prior to his appointment but as an officer of the Corporation has to abide by court order. The court furious over the failure of the Corporation authorities in showing the alternatve land to the victim has issued arrest warrant order to him to undergo one month imprisonment.
The court employee who went to serve the warrant could not hand over it as the Municipal Commissioner was not available, according to sources.
