Telangana Rashtra Samiti MP from Medak Vijayashanti on Thursday produced before the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC), the persons who sustained severe bruises when they were beaten up by the police for obstructing ‘Rachabanda' programme at villages in Dubbaka mandal of Medak district.

No cases booked

The villagers complained to the acting Chairman of State Human Rights Commission K. Peda Peri Reddy that the police refused to book cases in the matter.

Directive to DIG

Mr. Reddy asked the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Nizamabad Range to inquire and submit a report by February 21.

Talking to media persons later, the Telangana Rashtra Samiti MP said all those who faced the brutality of police were from weaker sections, even women were not spared. Not TRS activists

She said the injured were not even TRS activists.

Of course, the TRS had given a call for boycott of the programme but they were not implementing it.

They were dragged out from houses and beaten up. Apart from action against erring police officers, she demanded medical aid and payment of ex gratia to the injured. Former Dubbaka MLA S. Ramalinga Reddy was also present.
