A video where TRS leader Koneru Krishna is seen to lead a mob assaulting a female forest officer on duty in Komaram Bheem Asifabad district in Telangana had surfaced yesterday. This video was shared widely across all social media platforms.

Now, in another shocking video, Krishna’s brother, who is also a TRS MLA, Koneru Konappa was caught trying to brainwash the villagers in a bid to twist the sequence of events in front of the media that led to the arrest of Krishna.

The MLA from Khagajnagar was caught on camera trying to convince locals to mislead the media on the events that led to the attack. He is seen telling the people, gathered around him, “I will call the reporters, media, tell them that the forest officials were threatening you all to not go to your lands. Say they’ve dug up our lands, our farms are inside, they’re threatening us not to get into our land.”

The incident, which took the social media by a storm on Sunday, the forest officer Chole Anitha was seen standing on a tractor while a group of men holding wooden sticks surrounded her. They start attacking the vehicle while one of them hit Anita as well that left her with a fractured right hand. The forest department officials had arrived at the area for a plantation drive, which the TRS leaders are opposing.

Following this incident, Krishna was arrested along with 15 others after a case was registered against them. Anitha recorded a statement naming Krishna Rao as the one who attacked her and led the mob.

Krishna, who is a Zilla Parishad vice-chairman was booked under Sections 353 (Assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 332 (Voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 307 (Attempt to murder), 147 (Rioting), 148 (Rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 427 (Mischief causing damage), 507 (Criminal intimidation), 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC.

Taking serious note of the incident, Telangana police authorities have placed Khagajnagar DySP and Rural CI under suspension on the charges of negligence in discharging their duties.

Moreover, referring to an incident, which occurred two weeks ago, in which the residents and forest officials got into an argument the Kagaznagar MLA Konappa was further heard misguiding the villagers, “Tell the media that they had beaten us 15 days back, and now again they have beaten us up.” Though no violence was reported then, the MLA was heard asking the locals to distort and present a magnified version of the incident in front of media.

Nevertheless, forest authorities on Monday went and carried out a planting drive, that is currently underway amidst heavy police security in the contentious land.
