He had civil dispute with Shambu Prasad and Sons Pvt Ltd and Nageshwar Estates Pvt Ltd (both belonging to one family) over the assets of Andhra Patrika (about 4800 yards) in a prime locality near Railway Station, Vijayawada.
Motive behind the kidnap and murder:
Shambu Prasad & Sons Private Limited and Nageshwar Rao Estates are jointly holding property at prime locality admeasuring 4800 square yeards at Hanumanpet, Vijaywada. They were running a daily news paper “Andhra Patrika”. As it was running in losses they sold the unit to one Sri. Chakrapani (deceased) in the year 1990. Sri. Chakrapani lead the business in profits. Seeing this Shambu Prasad filed two suits in the courts against Chakrapani to take back properties. While the suits are pending, Shambu Prasad and sons Pvt Ltd in the year 1994 sold the same property to one Maganti Subba Rami Reddy and his associates for which one Mastan Reddy is GPA holder. In the year 2009, Shambu Prasad Pvt Ltd won the suit, however Sri. Chakrapani went for appeal in higher court and the appeal is pending at Hon’ble IInd Addl District Court at Vijayayawada. Inspite of knowing the litigation the accused entered into an agreement with Mastan Reddy (GPA holder) for purchase of the land on 15-11-2010 and paid 11 crores as an advance and the registration is pending. As per the confession of Raja Sekhar Reddy that he approached the deceased and offered 3 crores to resolve the matter and withdraw the case but the deceased said to have demanded Rs. 17 crores.
As A-1, Raja Sekhar Reddy could not mange to settle the issue by threatening and as he was running out of time for completion of sale agreement, he strongly decided to eliminate Sri. Chakrapani. Therefore, he had made some attempts to eliminate the deceased and tried to get assassins from outside. But this time he hired A-2 and his associates, who succeeded in execution of kidnap and murder of Chakrapani.
Plan and preperation:
A-1 Raja Sekhar Reddy who was in regular touch with A-2, Srinivas Goud contacted him for eliminating the deceased and offered Rs. 15 lakhs. On that, Srinivas Goud conspired with A-1, Rajesh Goud, Mahesh, Siddiramulu and Shiva Kumar and offered Rs. 2 lakhs each to Rajesh, Mahesh, Siddiramulu and Rs. 50000/- to Shiva Kumar. They planned and were waiting for opportunity since one month. As per their plan Siddiramulu bought two surgical blades. Mahesh procured 5 liters petrol. Purchased one Sumo vehicle. Also kept another seized Tata Indica car and a two wheeler for utilizing them in execution of murder.
A-1 along with A-2 conspired and planned to kill Chakrapani by hitting him with a vehicle and simulated a scene of road accident. Accordingly A-2 committed kidnap and murder of Chakrapani, along with A3 to A6.
