Tsundur case: High Court admits plea

By Our Legal Correspondent

HYDERABAD, JUNE 17. A writ petition filed challenging the appointment of a special public prosecutor to try the Tsundur case was admitted by S. Ananda Reddy, a Judge of the High Court on Thursday.

Mallikarjuna Reddy, one of the accused in the case, filed the petition. Several persons belonging to the Schedule Castes were allegedly killed by persons belonging to other caste groups. Though this incident took place long ago, the trial could not start due to various technical reasons and insistence that the trial be held at Tsundur village near Tenali, Guntur district. The State Government had directed that the trial should take place at Tsundur and appointed B. Chandrasekhar as Special Public Prosecutor.

The petitioner complained to the court that the Public Prosecutor was one of the persons who instigated the Scheduled Caste community and is biased. The writ petition was admitted and notice ordered for the case to come up for hearing on Monday for further orders.
