While the top executives of Dr Ramesh Hospitals which were held responsible for the major fire accident in the COVID facilities were still missing, Vijayawada police after days of the mishap decided to resort to the last weapon to find the absconding officials.
In a shocking revelation, stating that none of the arrested is cooperating with the investigation, Vijayawada police on Thursday announced a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh to anyone who would provide tip off about the absconding managing director Dr Ramesh Babu and other officials.
It can be noted that hours after the Krishna district administration revoked the ‘Category A’ COVID license given to Ramesh Hospitals, Dr Pothineni Ramesh Babu on Monday filed an anticipatory bail petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court.
The MD went incommunicado for two days after he released a video over the fire accident. While the state government deployed eight special teams to probe into the accident, Dr Ramesh Babu and Pallepothu Srinivas Rao were already served notices under Section 160.
