May 11, 2014

Former Maoist leader Konapuri Ramulu, the brother of slain Maoist general secretary K Sambasivudu was shot dead by some unidentified miscreants at MA Baig Function hall at Ram Nagar Colony in Nalgonda at around 11.30 am.

The incident took place when he along with his two gunmen got down attending the wedding of New Democracy leader Parvathalu's daughter when they were ambushed. Seven unidentified persons intercepted them and spilled chilli powder in the eyes of gunmen and shot Ramulu at a very close range before fleeing in a vehicle.

Ramulu an underground Naxalite for many years had surrendered before DIG way back in June 13, 2007. He later joined the TRS and was working as district vice-president. He expressed his fears of threat on his life on several occasions from Nayeemuddin gang.

It may be recalled that an attempt was made on his life on June 9, 2013 at Anthammagudem village in Nalgonda district but was escaped unhurt. The Choutuppal police arrested eight of the nine suspected attackers.
