Thursday, January 12, 2017

The City police have arrested N.Sai Vamsi, working for Clove Technologies Private Limited located on Hill No.2 at Rushikonda who demanded crore to tell the location and defuse the bomb planted on the premises.

According to police sources, T.Subrahmanya Varma, Director of the Clove Technologies Private Limited had informed the police that he had received an e-mail from unknown person that a bomb has been placed somewhere inside the company premises and the email sender demanded Rs.1 crore to tell the location and defuse it. The DCP (Law and Order) Naveen Gulati said that they have received a call from the Director of the company at around 8.44pm on January 1. ‘We sent a bomb squad to detect the bomb. And only after sanitizing the entire area for over six hours, we have a clearance’, he said.

The mystery of the email was solved on Thursday with the arrest of Sai Vamsi. According to police, he was addicted to vices and to fulfil his desires, he had made debts to the tune of Rs.5 lakh and to repay the amount he hatched a plan and sent the mail to the director. The mail was sent from an Internet Centre in Maddilapalem and since the Net centre did not have any CCTV, the police checked the register where the accused mobile number was registered. Based on that clue, the police investigated and zeroed and booked under IPC 387 and Section 66 of IT Act, said the DCP.
