Rachakonda Police Commissioner DS Chauhan issued orders dismissing Srikanth from the service. Srikanth worked as a driver for an officer working in Rachakonda and had used an official car to carry out the theft.

The Punjagutta police are continuing to investigate the case and are hopeful of arresting the third accomplice soon.
