Police harassing YSRC cadre, saya Bajireddy: June 28,2012

Hyderabad, June 28: YSR Congress party on Thursday demanded stern action against the police officials responsible for severely beating up the party activists belonging to Ibrahimpatnam and sending them to jail on false charges.

“Nine party activists were picked up on the night YS Jaganmohan Reddy was arrested on May 27 and were severely beaten up and sent to Cheralaplli jail while no official note was issued about any such arrest,” party spokesperson BajireddyGoverdhan said.

 The activists held dharna near Ibrahimpatnam and went to sleep at the party office from where they were picked at 2.30 am by in-charge ACP and beat them up severely saying that they were responsible for the death of a RTC bus driver.

However, they were sent to jail under Preventive Detention Act on a 15-day remand. The police did not reveal details of arrest of our Party activists. We will move the court and take up the issue at the Human Rights Commission besides filing a private case as the police behaved in a highhanded manner, he said.


Action should be taken against all erring police personnel immediately, he said.

The Party Seva Dal city convenor Ram Mohan too was picked up from his house while the police officials had told a concocted version. Ever since the arrest of YS Jaganmohan Reddy many activists were picked up and were harassed, he said adding that the issue would be taken up at appropriate levels.
