HYDERABAD: Responding to a complaint lodged by Karimnagar MP and BJP State president Bandi Sanjay Kumar, the Lok Sabha Privileges Committee has summoned Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar, DGP Mahender Reddy and other police officials to attend a sitting of the panel on February 3. 

In his January 3 complaint, Sanjay Kumar had alleged that Karimnagar Police Commissioner V Satyanarayana and three other police officials had illegally arrested him and registered false cases against him. 

It may be recalled that Sanjay was arrested when he was staging a protest at his camp office in Karimnagar on January 2 against GO 317 issued by the State government.
