Mancherial: ML Muthi Lingaiah, Jammikunta Rural Inspector, was posted as Circle Inspector of Mancherial town which was lying vacant for over a month. An order to this effect was issued by North Zone Inspector General Y Nagireddy on Thursday.
B Tirupathi Reddy was transferred to Mancherial and was posted as inspector, replacing inspector A Mahesh in June. But he was transferred to enforcement wing a fortnight back. No officer was posted here since then. Consequently, the police department drew flak with the key post remaining vacant for quite long. Lingaiah belongs to 2004 batch.
