SIT formed to investigate into stone pelting on Babu's bus


A Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been set up by the Andhra Pradesh police to probe into the stone-pelting incident that happened when TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu was touring the villages in the Amaravati region during his recent 'Chalo Amaravati' tour. 

During his bus tour to the villages around Amaravati on Thursday, stones were pelted on Naidu's bus. The TDP has alleged that some workers from YSRCP were involved in the attack. 

Police have stated that they have taken two people into custody for pelting stones and footwear at the bus. Denying any major damage to the bus, the police said that the windscreen of the bus was already cracked before the tour began. The two accused were booked at Thulluru police station and served notice under Section 41 of the CrPC.

Speaking to the media, Guntur Range Inspector General Vinit Brijlal said that an SIT would be formed which will be headed by an Additional SP rank officer to check for the security lapses and arrest if any more people are involved in the incident. He further added that 207 police personnel were deployed during the bus tour to provide additional security to Naidu.  

The incident occured on Thursday when the convoy of TDP was passing through the Seed Access Road near Rayapudi.  Naidu, who was visiting Amaravati to protest against YSRCP government's lacklusture attitude on Amaravati development was met with black flags and 'Naidu go back' slogans.
