Revanth Reddy Went to HC, Police Say He Will be Released Soon!
Revanth Reddy who was arrested this morning filed a lunch motion in the Hyderabad High Court. The reason said was that Revanth could disturb KCR’s meeting in Kodangal.
The lunch motion will be heard by the High Court at 2.15 pm and Advocate CV Mohan Reddy will appear on behalf of Revanth.
After Revanth Reddy’s arrest, supporters in areas like Navapet, Pedda Nandigama staged rasta rokos, raised slogans and demanded that Revanth be released immediately.
Section 144 was imposed in the constituency following Revanth's arrest. Revanth's wife Geetha questioned how the rally is being done, if PO was imposed and asked Revanth followers to stay calm.
Vikarabad SP T Annapurna said that Revanth was arrested under Section 151 of the CrPC (Arrest to prevent the commission of cognizable offences).
“He will be in custody for few hours. He is safe and we have done this in order to make elections happen peacefully and lawfully,” said SP.
Meanwhile, the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) has sent a letter to EC which reads “You are informed that Revanth Reddy never called for a bandh at Kosgi. There is no complaint with the DEO (District Election Officer) as could be known from the DEO’s office before you started to give instructions to the police of Telangana state,” it stated.
“The caretaker CM also has to be treated as a former MLA but you seem to have treated him as a Chief Minister and gave instructions under the influence of state machinery to prevent Mr Revanth Reddy and kept them under preventive arrest,” the letter further added.
“The program of Mr Revanth Reddy, working president and as a star campaigner has already been fixed in advance and a chopper has been booked for the said purpose. Because of your action, all monies and time and rent for the chopper etc. have become a useless exercise and for which you alone would be held liable. If you want to send Revanth Reddy out of Kodangal constituency, you may allow him to fly to other constituencies by chopper as a star campaigner, but fail to understand why you arrested him and at whose instance,” the letter said.
