HYDERABAD: A timber merchant was allegedly slapped and threatened by former mayor Banda Karthika Reddy’s husband Chandra Reddy at his house on Wednesday. According to police, the timber merchant, Sridhar Reddy, supplied wood for furniture in the house of Chandra Reddy at Tarnaka.

Complaining that the timber was of inferior quality, Chandra asked the merchant to replace the material.

“Sridhar Reddy went to Chandra Reddy’s house on Wednesday to discuss the issue.

Heated arguments took place between the two and Chandra Reddy allegedly slapped Sridhar Reddy following which he fell down,” OU police inspector P Ashok said.

The timber merchant was also allegedly threatened by Chandra Reddy.

Sridhar Reddy lodged a complaint with the police who, in turn, sought permission of the court to register a case against Chandra Reddy.

“The contents of the complaint attract Section 506 (criminal intimidation) against Chandra Reddy and we have to take the permission of the court to register the case,” police said.
