YSRCP leaders demand probe by central agencies on attack

A remand report was submitted by AP police with local court seeking custody of accused in the recent attack on YSRCP President Jaganmohan Reddy. The police claimed that this attack was a case of attempt to murder and have registered a case under section 307 of Indian penal code. 

While waiting to board a flight to Hyderabad last week, Jagan was attacked by a waiter working at Vishakhapatnam airport’s restaurant. The accused was arrested immediately and police seized a 2.5 inches knife and a 10 -page letter from him. 

Even as the investigation of case is ongoing, YSRCP Rajya Sabha member, Vijay Sai Reddy, MPs YV Subba Reddy, Rajamohan Reddy and Avinash Reddy left to Delhi seeking intervention from President Ram Nath Kovind and Home Minister Rajnath Singh. 

“We don’t trust and do not have confidence on the investigation by the AP police as minutes after the attack, the state police and TDP leaders started a cover-up. The DGP said that the attacker was a YSRC sympathiser and attacked Jagan to seek publicity which is part of cover up act. We suspect senior leaders of the ruling party are behind the attack and we demand a third-party probe with any central agency." MP Subba Reddy said. 

The attacked raised serious political heat in AP with both TDP and YSRCP accusing each other of foul play. The statement from AP DGP RP Thakur where he claimed that the attack was done for publicity also attracted severe criticism from the opposition parties. 

“The statements from police and state government were reckless and that is why we don’t trust state police with the investigation”, Subba Reddy added.
