Police said police constable Konduru Mohan, 31, of Hyderabad Commissionerate and resident of Bahadurpally village under Qutbullapur mandal was presently staying at Manikonda. He was recruited as a Civil Constable in 2005. While he was working as a crime constable at Narayanguda PS, he developed close contact with Farooq who was in custody of Narayanaguda PS. After remand, the PC visited the jail during “Mulakath” with Farooq and arranged bail expenditure and co-operated in his release on bail.
