A week after his retirement, former Andhra Pradesh DGP V Dinesh Reddy said on Tuesday he was “betrayed” because he was not given an extension despite “assurances” from chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy.

“On several occasions I was assured by the chief minister himself that I will get an extension for another year,” he told reporters here.

“However, I felt humiliated that just two days prior to my superannuation, a notice was given to me on my retirement. I am only (recounting) the circumstances leading to my humiliation I faced. I am hurt and sharing my feelings. I have been betrayed,” said Reddy, who is under the CBI scanner on allegations of acquiring disproportionate assets and retired on September 30.

He said his statements about the influence of Maoists in a bifurcated state, ahead of the announcement of Telangana, had “annoyed” the chief minister. Referring to the CBI probe against him, he said, “I have given the CBI all the documents.”He said it was the CM who “intervened and directed the police” to give permission to the “Save Andhra Pradesh” public meeting organised by the AP non-gazetted officers.
