    Former State Intelligence Bureau Chief T Prabhakar Rao is currently being investigated by the police. He called a top police official to say he was getting cancer treatment in the USA and would return in July. Two arrested police officers revealed that phones of prominent realtors, jewelers, and businessmen were tapped illegally.

    After the arrest of two additional SPs, Thirupathanna and N Bhujanga Rao, the Hyderabad police implicated Prabhakar Rao and former deputy commissioner P Radha Krishna Rao in the phone tapping case. A Look Out Circular has been issued for Prabhakar Rao. The police claim that Prabhakar Rao ordered the illegal phone tapping of political leaders and businessmen.

    Prabhakar Rao served as the SIB chief during K Chandrashekar Rao’s tenure and has reportedly fled to the United States. He allegedly instructed his subordinates, including Praneeth Rao, to tap phones illegally. The Punjagutta police have requested custody of the arrested officers, who have confessed to their involvement in the crimes. They are also accused of destroying evidence to cover up their actions.

    Overall, four police officers have been arrested for their roles in the illegal phone tapping case. The investigation is ongoing, with more details expected to emerge in the coming days.
