A 56-year-old man, who was summoned to the police station, fell sick and died, allegedly after he was beaten up at the Chinthapally police station.

Menavath Surya from Palem thanda of Chinthapally mandal died while undergoing treatment in the area hospital of Devarakonda. He had a dispute with his brother Bheema over sharing their ancestral land. When Bheema lodged a complaint with the Chinthapally police, Sub-inspector Satheesh Reddy called both the brothers to the police station to hear their versions. Surya, who was staying in Hyderabad, along with Bheema went to the station two days later as he was residing at Hyderabad.
