In a disconcerting incident, the Telangana Department of Animal Husbandry office faced an act of vandalism, resulting in the destruction of files and devices. The Hyderabad Police took swift action, registering a case against the staff of the former Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) Minister, Talasani Srinivas Yadav. The incident came to light when a watchman noticed suspicious activities and filed a complaint, leading to an ongoing investigation.

The case is centered around Kalyan Kumar, who served as the Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to the former Minister of Animal Husbandry. Alongside him, four others have been implicated, including computer operators Elijah and Mohan, as well as attenders Venkatesh and Prasanth.

According to police reports, the watchman discovered the aftermath of the vandalism on December 8 during a routine inspection at around 7 pm. Notably, the lock to OSD Kalyan's office room was found open. Upon closer inspection through a window, the watchman observed scattered documents and some placed on a black cover. Suspecting foul play, especially since some papers were strewn on the floor, he raised concerns that crucial documents might have been taken.

Further investigation revealed that OSD Kalyan and the four accused had been present at the office during the mentioned timeframe. The watchman, considering the recent change in government, suspected that the former minister's staff, led by OSD Kalyan, might have surreptitiously accessed the office and taken important documents.

The police, upon inspecting the scene, found numerous papers in torn condition, discarded in polyethylene bags, indicating a deliberate attempt to damage and disrupt. The room was in complete disarray, with broken cameras hanging on walls, and DVR cables detached.

A case has been registered against the accused under various sections, including criminal breach of trust, mischief causing damage, trespass, fraudulent cancellation, destruction of valuable security, and abetment. The investigation is actively underway to uncover the motives behind this act of vandalism and to bring the perpetrators to justice. The incident raises concerns about the security and integrity of government offices, emphasizing the need for robust measures to prevent such occurrences in the future.
