Janasena MLA held on charge of attacking police station

Amaravati, Aug.13 (PMI): Jana Sena Party MLA in Andhra Pradesh was on Tuesday arrested in connection with an alleged attack on Razole police station.
Some 10 followers of MLA Rapaka Varaprasad were also arrested in the case, police said. A case under various IPC sections, including preventing a public servant from discharging his duties, was registered against them. Narrating the sequence of events, police said some people were taken into custody in a gambling case on Sunday. The MLA had gone to the police station and wanted the sub-inspector to release one person, who was suffering from kidney ailment.
As the police did not free him, the MLA and his followers entered into an argument with the sub-inspector and staged a dharna. While the MLA accused the police official of misbehaving and abusing him, police alleged that during the protest his supporters damaged police station property. As police launched a hunt for him, the MLA came to the Razole police station in the afternoon and surrenered. Condemning the arrest of his MLA, Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan blamed the police for the flare-up. He also alleged that police were applying different yardsticks for ruling and Opposition legislators. (PMI)
