The TRS announced, Chief Minister and TRS President K. Chandrasekhar Rao, party general secretary Palla Rajeshwar Reddy and party in-charge of Khammam N. Naresh Reddy decided to suspend Raghavendra Rao, (who is the leader of the party in Bhadradri Kothagudem district) suspension with immediate effect.
Meanwhile, the search for the MLA’s son is on by the Special Police Team. The Kothagudem police denied reports of the arrest of Raghavendra Rao late on Thursday night.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Rohit Raj said eight police teams were searching for Raghavendra in Telangana and neighboring Andhra Pradesh.
The ASP said that the police is also probing the cases registered against Raghavendra in the past and if they find evidence, they will open a rowdy sheet against him.
The police on Friday pasted a notice at Raghavendra’s house in Paloncha and directed him to appear before ASP Manuguru for abetment to suicide.
In another development, a bandh was observed in Kothagudem town on Friday following a call by opposition parties and mass organizations demanding immediate arrest of the accused. He alleged that the government was trying to save the accused, as he is the son of an MLA.
Leaders of opposition parties alleged that no action was taken against Raghavendra, though cases were registered against him in the past.
The MLA’s son faces serious allegations in the latest case of suicide of a businessman, his wife and his two daughters.
M. Naga Ramakrishna (45), his wife Sri Lakshmi (40) and their daughter Sahitya (12) died, while another daughter was injured when she set herself ablaze at her home in Paloncha on 3 January . Sahitya, Sahitya’s twin sister, died on January 5 while undergoing treatment at a local hospital.
The businessman alleged in a video recorded on his mobile before committing suicide that Raghavendra had asked him to bring his wife to Hyderabad. He said that Raghavendra tried to use his political and money power to fulfill his physical desire.
The man said in the video, “If I die alone, he will not leave my wife and children.” That’s why I’m taking them with me.
The police also recovered Ramakrishna’s suicide note, in which he blamed his mother Suryavati, his sister K’s Lova Madhavi and Raghavendra for the death of his family.
According to the police, the businessman has written that he has taken this step because due to the affair between his sister and Raghavendra, injustice has been done to him. Ramakrishna also referred to the dispute over sharing of property with his mother and sister to pay off his debts of around Rs 30 lakh.
The police had registered a case of abetment to suicide against the trio on the basis of the suicide note. Raghavendra, who went into hiding after the incident, issued a video message to the media, denying any involvement in the matter. He said that he had only advised Ramakrishna to take care of his mother.
