Andhra Pradesh: Guntur Police detain TDP leader BS Murthy for insulting the chief minister and the minister of tourism

For allegedly making disparaging statements against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Tourism Minister R K Roja, senior TDP politician Bandaru Satyanarayana Murthy was detained.

Murthy (68) was taken into custody in Parawada Mandal in the Anakapalli district on Monday night.

Murthy was picked up at 7:45 p.m. on Monday and sent to Guntur the very same night. Uma Maheshwar Reddy, a police officer of the Guntur West Subdivision, told PTI, “We will present him in court.

Villagers in Vennelapalem attempted to block the vehicle that was coming to pick up Murthy on Monday night, according to a video posted by PTI on X.

For uttering the remarks, the former minister was detained in accordance with many IPC sections, including 153 A, 354 A, 503, and 504.

Officials told ANI that Murthy initially reportedly refused to comply with the police when they arrived from Guntur to serve him with a notice to appear and arrest him.

According to reports, the cops had to break down the door to enter and take Murthy into arrest. After that, the TDP leader was driven to Guntur.

According to reports, Murthy has submitted an anticipatory bail plea to the Andhra Pradesh High Court.

According to reports, Murthy made some disparaging remarks about Roja on a personal level. Roja’s husband Selvamani responded to his statements by saying that they were too personal. In addition, Selvamani urged Murthy to provide all the information and back up his accusations with proof.

Nara Lokesh, a TDP leader and the son of former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, denounced the arrest and cited unfair treatment of opposition and governing party politicians. Using “one law for the YSRCP government and another law for the opposition,” he said, was the Bharatiya Janata Party, the current government.
