Telangana: Supporters thrash Congress workers after TRS leader is stoned to death, police rule out political angle

The police are considering Reddy's involvement in an ongoing dispute with a rival gang in the village as the reason behind the murder.

Nayaran Reddy, a Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader, was allegedly stoned to death in Telangana’s Vikarabad and his body was discovered on Tuesday, news agency ANI reported. His body was recovered from Sultanpur village of Pargi in Vikarabad.

As information of his alleged murder spread, his party supporters attacked Congress workers, claiming that they were involved in Reddy’s murder. The Congress workers were rushed to a local hospital after the incident.

Tension gripped the area following the murder of the local leader and the subsequent clashes between the TRS and Congress supporters.

The police have, however, ruled out the possibility of a political angle to the murder and are considering Reddy’s involvement in an ongoing dispute with a rival gang in the village as the reason behind the murder.

Ahead of the assembly elections due next month, several videos have been surfacing,  showing TRS candidates being grilled, shouted at and even being obstructed by voters across the state.

A scuffle was reported on Monday, between TRS workers and villagers of Yellandu. As per reports, the clashes took place after the villagers questioned the TRS leader Koram Kanakaiah about the lack of development in the village.

In a similar incident on Sunday, angry TRS workers thrashed locals who were protesting against the TRS candidate in Yadadri Bhuvanagiri district. Clashes broke out between villagers and the ruling party cadre when Tungaturthi sitting MLA, Gadhari Kishore went to Anajipuram village. The altercation between them soon converted into a fistfight, while police personnel were still present at the location.

The Telangana legislative assembly elections are scheduled to be held on December 7, 2018, and the result will be out on 11 December 2018.
