NEW DELHI: A day after a man committed suicide in the capital for Telangana, a Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader Thursday slapped and abused an employee in Andhra Pradesh Bhavan for refusing to let the man’s body inside the Bhavan premises.
TRS party chief K. Chandrashekhar Rao’s nephew Harish Rao along with other party leaders like K.T. Rama Rao, Etela Rajender and former MP B. Vinod Kumar went to Andhra Bhavan to keep the body of M. Yadi Reddy, who hanged himself from a tree at India Gate Wednesday.
The TRS members wanted to pay floral tributes to Yadi Reddy and bring his body to the guest house from the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, where the autopsy was done. However, the Bhavan officials did not allow the body to be brought inside the premises.
Harish Rao, along with others, then barged into the resident commissioner’s office and abused him for not allowing Reddy’s body inside.
In the full glare of media, Harish Rao went a step ahead and slapped a Bhavan official who said he had acted only as per the direction of the Andhra Pradesh resident commissioner.(IANS)
