Telangana Rashtra Samithi MLAs led by T Harish Rao, nephew of party chief K Chandrashekar Rao, barged into Andhra Pradesh Bhawan in Delhi and Harish Rao assaulted a senior official Chander Rao.
The TRS MLAs were demanding that the body of a 23-year-old Adi Reddy, who committed suicide on Wednesday over the delay in the formation of a separate state, be kept at the premises of AP Bhavan. They were angry that the authorities refused permission for their demand.
The incident of Harish Rao assaulting the AP Bhavan official was caught on media TV footage. The staff of AP Bhavan stopped attending to their work and started dharna demanding action against the TRS MLA.
The alleged suicide by Adi Reddy for Telangana state has given a new wave of protests in Delhi by the pro-Telangana activists. Congressmen led by Madhu Yashki MP also a staged a dharna in front of AP Bhavan.
