Violence in Darsi

Violence broke out at Darsi in Prakasam district on Sunday after a defeated TDP sarpanch candidate committed suicide in the wee hours.

More than 500 activists pitched a tent in front of the Darsi police station with the body of Venkataratnam (39) demanding action against CI V. Sriram, who they said had used “foul language” when she sought recounting of votes after losing narrowly to the YSR Congress.
