Telangana: Woman revenue officer burnt alive by angry land owner for not correcting land records

Suresh Mudiraju was furious about the authorities not fixing errors in his documents despite several visits to the revenue office and even getting an order from the court in this connection.

A shocking incident has come to the fore wherein a woman Tahsildar of Telanagana’s revenue department was burnt alive in her office allegedly by a man angry over the official not fixing errors in his land records.

In the incident which occurred in Abdullapurmet Tahsil Office in Ranga Reddy district on the outskirts of Hyderabad on November 4, Tahsildar or Mandal Revenue Officer (MRO) Vijaya Reddy was in her chambers when a man walked in, poured petrol and set her ablaze. While the official died on the spot, the two employees who tried to save the MRO were injured. The condition of one of them is stated to be critical.

Police confirmed that the incident took place during the office lunch hours when there were not many visitors in the office.

The eye-witnesses to the incident claimed that the accused entered the woman officers office with passbooks related to his property this afternoon. Half an hour later, much to the horror of all passers-by, the Tahsildar rushed out of her office in flames. Although Vijaya Reddy’s office staff wrapped her in a blanket in an attempt to douse the flames, she died soon afterwards. Sources said that the accused, identified as Suresh Mudiraju, had smuggled a bottle of fuel into Vijaya Reddy’s office along with his land documents.

The assailant who also suffered burns in the incident later got himself admitted to a private hospital at Hayathnagar with reportedly 50-60 per cent burns and is said to be in a critical condition, confirmed Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat adding: “Suresh Mudiraju did not act on impulse. He came to the victim’s office with a plan.”

According to sources, Suresh Mudiraju was furious about the authorities not fixing errors in his documents despite several visits to the revenue office and even getting an order from the court in this connection.

The incident has, however, sent shock waves among government officials, who began protesting, demanding security for themselves.
