Police said that the accused Swamy, 27, a labourer approached a doctor in the village fully drunk. When Gopal, the doctor refused to give him an injection, he got worked up and started abusing him. The VRA, Kishan who saw this intervened and tried to pacify him in vain. As the situation was going out of control, Kishan and the locals decided to take him to Siddha Ramulu, the sarpanch.

The enumerators who had to distribute forms were not allowed to do their job,” said SI Sandeep Reddy. When people asked him to calm down he started abusing them and also attacked the VRA with stones.

His condition is now stable,” Mr Sandeep said. Cops said a case would be booked against Swamy for violence, and other offences.
