SANGAREDDY: What could be termed as a shocking revelation to the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), the Medak district police arrested three party activists responsible for burning ‘Telangana Talli' statue at Daultabad village in Hatnoora Mandal.

The police were able to complete the investigation within 36 hours and present the accused in the court.

The statue was burned with an intention to malign the image of Minister V. Sunitha Lakshma Reddy.

Disclosing the details at a press conference here on Friday, Superintendent of Police A. Sunder Kumar Das said that D. Srinivas Goud, brother of the accused in the destruction of Laskhma Reddy statue, husband of Ms. Sunitha, was the main figure in hatching and executing the plan for burning the statue.

Mr. Das said the police arrested TRS leader D. Ashok Goud and others in a case relating to the destruction of Lakshma Reddy statue at Narsapur. In order to take revenge against the Congress and damage the image of the party leaders, Srinivas Goud planned to burn the statute.

He took P. Veera Reddy and B. Nagaiah along with him in the wee hours of March 10. While Veera Reddy placed the tyre on the statue, Nagaiah poured petrol and Srinivas Goud set it on fire. All the three accused admitted before the media that they were involved in the incident.

Police also seized a Scorpio vehicle from the accused which was used to implement the plan. Referring to the statements made by TRS district convenor M. Raghunandana Rao over the incident, the Superintendent of Police urged him to search for ‘Telangana Drohulu' within the party first before blaming others. The police officials who investigated the case were presented cash rewards by the SP.
