Hyderabad: Angered over the lack of action taken in the death of his six-year-old boy, Deevakar Kuppuswamy has now reached out to the TRS party’s working president, K T Rama Rao, urging him to intervene in the matter.
Kuppuswamy’s son was electrocuted while playing at his housing society, PBEL City, in Narsingi on February 12.
In his tweet to KTR the father has expressed anguish over the inaction and urged that strict action be taken against the company looking after the maintenance services of the society for various lapses. “@KTRTRS KTR sir, I'm the helpless father of the kid who died few weeks back and awaiting action from police department. Its really painful for me that I lost my son and even more painful to see the NO action from police yet in this case.(sic),” wrote the father, a private employee.
Later, speaking to TOI, he reiterated how it has been three weeks since the incident and yet nothing has moved on the ground.
“My wife is still in shock and my four-year-old daughter is still asking for her brother. For us, one can understand how important justice is. This incident has been an eye-opener for many people. The company looking after maintenance services, GoldenStar Facilities and Services, should be held responsible. After the incident, their staff identified close to 40 spots that were prone to similar accidents and fixed it. Their license should be cancelled for such lapses,” said Deevakar.
Responding to his tweet, KTR offered his condolences to the family and asked the director general of police to look into the matter. “I am very sorry for your loss sir. Heartfelt condolences Kind request to @TelanganaDGP Mahendar Reddy Garu to take personal interest in this case,” KTR wrote.
When contacted, cops associated with the investigation said that they have filed an FIR against the GoldenStar Facilities and Services Pvt Ltd, PBEL City Owners Association (POCA) and INCOR Appa Project. “We visited the spot and found several lapses on part of GoldenStar Facilities and Services. We are verifying the duties and responsibilities of the PCOA. Mainly the police are waiting for the post-mortem examination report from Tamil Nadu, as the autopsy was done there. After receiving the report, a charge sheet will be filed and accordingly, action will be taken. The builder's name will mostly we eliminated from the case, as they had handed over the responsibilities to PCOA,” said Narsingi inspector, Ramana Goud.
According to Devakar, the commissioner of police, Cyberbad, VC Sajjanar, contacted him and assured support from the police. “The justice system in India is slow, but we want the case to move fast. We want that strict action is taken against the responsible people so that no one else has to go through the same pain,” the father said.
Several attempts to reach GoldenStar Facilities and Services Pvt Ltd, for a comment, yielded no result.
