Police officials outside Revanth Reddy's house to prevent him from leaving his house to attend achabanda programme in Bhupalpally (By arrangement)
HYDERABAD: Tension prevailed at the residence of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president A. Revanth Reddy here at Jubilee Hills on Friday as the police put him under house arrest ahead of the Rachabanda programme in Bhupalpally. The police in large numbers gathered at Revanth’s residence and prevented him from going out. Allegedly, a few police personnel entered into the house of the state Congress president.
Reacting to this, Revanth Reddy expressed anger over policemen for entering into his house without warrant. Reportedly, he scolded a few police personnel, who entered the house from the rear side by jumping the walls. Assistant commissioner of police (ACP) Sudarshan said as per the directives of higher-officials they reached Jubilee Hills.
Meanwhile, Revanth Reddy spoke to Hyderabad police commissioner C.V. Anand about the camping of police personnel at his residence. Revanth Reddy said the police should act as per the norms. However, the Congress activists in huge numbers rushed to the residence of the TPCC chief during the arrest.
On the other hand, Congress leaders and activists had been taken into preventive custody in undivided Nalgonda district. A few Congress leaders burnt the effigy of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao in protest against the house arrest of Revanth Reddy.
