It has been learned that the advocates Mekala Srinivas Yadav and Prasanna Naidu have been at daggers drawn for some time now. 

On Wednesday when they came face to face near the first floor of the court building, they showered abuses and hit each other with chappals. At one stage, Srinivas Yadav bashed up Prasanna Naidu. With things going out of their control they went to the magistrate in the court and levelled charges against each other. The magistrate advised them to approach the police for further action. But Prasanna Naidu had to be rushed to a hospital.

According to sources, Prasanna Naidu had contested in the GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation) elections as a BJP candidate from Malkajgiri division, while Srinivas Yadav is associated with the TRS party.
