Taking serious objection to political leaders naming and accusing senior cops of being partial, the Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police, R.R. Girish Kumar, said the political parties should not take the police for granted.
The Telangana Rashtra Samiti president, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, had named four inspectors-general of police and accused them of ill-treating students of Osmania University and warned that he would teach them a lesson in future. Leaders from Andhra and Rayalaseema too made allegations against the police officers at Anantapur and Vijayawada.
The DGP warned that anyone indulging in provocative speeches inciting violence will be dealt with under the provisions of the Indian Penal Code.
