The state government today suspended ACB Additional SP Sunitha Reddy on the basis of a report submitted by Telangana DGP M Mahender Reddy.
Earlier in the day, the KPHB police visited Sunitha Reddy's residence and recorded her statement. The police also questioned CI Mallikarjun Reddy.
Based on the statements recorded, IG Stephen Ravinder submitted a report to the DGP, which was then forwarded to the state government, following which the latter issued suspension orders against Sunitha Reddy.
For the uninitiated, ASP Sunitha Reddy had been caught by her husband having an illicit affair
with CI Reddy. The incident which occurred in the early hours of Monday in Kukatpally saw the CI being severely thrashed by the lady officer's kin.
Currently, CI Reddy, too, is under suspension from the department. He is also facing criminal charges based on the complaint made against him by the ASP's husband.
