HYDERABAD: Days after a TRS woman leader assaulted a traffic policeman on duty at Moula Ali, TRS workers on Tuesday allegedly assaulted a person at Malkajgiri, Rachakonda. The incident occurred at a review meeting on the progress of Anand Bagh’s Road Under Bridge (RUB) being held by Malkajgiri MLA Mynampally Hanumanth Rao. As the MLA was addressing the meeting, BJP workers protested, holding placards, demanding to expedite the RUB work.

Infuriated with this, the MLA, ‘lost his cool’ and threatened the protestors.  In the video which went viral, he says, “The work which was pending for long is moving now, and this should not be politicised. Don’t create a nuisance and disturb the meeting,” he says.

This led to violent protests. A scuffle ensued between the BJP and TRS workers leaving five people injured. B Nagaraju was allegedly badly beaten up by a group of more than 20 people. While he suffered a hairline fracture on the nose and other injuries, Srinivas, another man, suffered a leg fracture. The Malkajgiri police registered two separate cases against both the complainants.
