Brave Officer Sub Inspector Siddaiah Breathed his last today in Kamineni Hospital.

A police official, who was injured in the gunfight with terror operatives in Telangana`s Nalgonda district on Saturday, died at Kamineni hospital in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

Sub-inspector G. D. Siddaiah breathed his last at Kamineni Hospital, where he was battling for life from past 3 days. Doctors said he was brought in a critical condition and could not recover despite all the efforts to save him.

Siddaiah had sustained four bullet injuries. While doctors removed three bullets, the fourth which pierced through his head could not be taken out. Siddaiah`s death came as a huge shock to the family as his wife had delivered their first child on Saturday.

Meanwhile, a team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) visited Suryapet and collected information from local police officers about the incident. Police continued search operations in Nalgonda district, where a third terror operative is suspected to be hiding.

The Telangana Government has increased compensation for the families of police personnel killed in terrorist violence to Rs. 40 lakhs from Rs. 25 lakhs.
