The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has questioned the CBI for “mollycoddling YSRCP’s Kadapa MP Y S Avinash Reddy who is holed up in a hospital” in Kurnool allegedly to evade a summons by the investigation company in reference to the homicide of his relative and former Andhra Pradesh’s minister Y S Vivekananda Reddy. A two-member CBI staff camped outdoors the hospital to serve him with a summons in reference to the homicide of his uncle in 2019.
The CBI has issued two summons to Avinash Reddy to look earlier than it in reference to the homicide of Vivekananda Reddy.
TDP nationwide spokesperson Ok Pattabhi Ram Thursday questioned why the CBI can’t take Avinash Reddy into custody and accused the central authorities of setting a foul precedent if its premier company is unable to succeed in somebody who’s an accused in a homicide case despite figuring out the place the individual is hiding.
“Will the Government of India take the same approach if a dreaded criminal or terrorist is hiding at a place? Why is the CBI displaying itself as weak and at the mercy of the Superintendent of Police of Kurnool? It is not only showing the CBI in a bad light but also setting an example for others to avoid the law with the help of a small private army protecting you outside where you are hiding,” Pattabhi Ram informed The Indian Express.
The Kadapa MP continues to dodge the CBI summons for the fifth day as he’s along with his mom on the Viswabharathi Superspeciality Hospital at Kurnool the place she is admitted with a coronary heart ailment. Reddy’s bail petition is to be heard by the Supreme Court (SC) in a while Thursday. The TDP has demanded that if the SC doesn’t grant him aid, the CBI ought to transfer in and take Avinash Reddy into custody.
Pattabhi Ram stated that the TDP is anxious concerning the well-being of Avinash Reddy’s mom Lakshmi. “We want her to get well soon. But if anything happens to her Avinash Reddy should be the one to blame. Why is he not shifting her to Apollo or other super-speciality hospitals in Hyderabad instead of admitting her to a small hospital at Kurnool? Does he not want better treatment for his mother?” Ram requested.
Ram identified the occasion when the Central Government repeatedly blocked the bail petition of AAP chief and former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia when his spouse was severely unwell saying that “there were other family members to take care of her”. So what’s stopping the CBI from going to the hospital to take custody of Avinash Reddy, Ram requested.
The TDP has additionally accused the CBI of slow-pedalling within the investigation of Y S Vivekananda Reddy’s homicide. Its leaders met Governor Justice (retired) Abdul Nazir and submitted a illustration.
Senior TDP chief Bonda Umamaheswara Rao stated that Andhra Pradesh is witnessing a wierd state of affairs the place within the CBI is getting petrified of the ruling YSRCP. “Several shocking facts are coming to light in the CBI investigation in the case. The CBI has come to a conclusion that Avinash Reddy had tried to distort the evidence and that he is the key witness in the case,” Rao stated.
Though the CBI has summoned the YSRCP MP thrice, he’s escaping on some pretext or the opposite, Rao stated. He accused the state authorities of placing strain on the CBI to go sluggish within the case. “The state police system is trying to protect Avinash, who is an accused in the murder case and we have informed this to the Governor,” the TDP chief stated.
Rao stated that there was a wierd state of affairs prevailing solely in Andhra Pradesh. “The CBI officials were sitting in the Kurnool SP office for eight hours on Monday when they went to issue summons to Avinash Reddy, and the police failed to provide security to them,” he stated. YSRCP employees created obstructions to the CBI officers however the native police remained mere spectators, he alleged.
TDP politburo member Varla Ramaiah alleged that often the native police concern the CBI however the state of affairs in Andhra Pradesh is kind of the alternative. “Why did the police fail to control the YSRCP workers outside the hospital?” he requested.
