Lok Satta demands action against Karimnagar, Warnagal jail superintendents

Special privileges were provided to tainted ASI B. Mohan Reddy and wife

Lok Satta Udyama Samstha’s Karimnagar district unit has urged Director General of Prisons V.K. Singh to take stringent action against the jail superintendents of both Karimnagar and Warangal districts for allowing jail inmates suspended ASI B. Mohan Reddy and his wife B. Latha to undergo medical treatment without court permission.

The tainted ASI was arrested and lodged in jail on the disproportionate assets case since April 2017. Recently, the ACB sleuths arrested his wife B. Latha and lodged her in Karimnagar jail. The Warangal and Karimnagar district jail superintendents took Mohan Reddy and Latha to NIMS Hyderabad on April 2 for medical treatment without the consent of the ACB court. The ACB court had served show-cause notices to both the jail superintendents.

When Latha approached the High Court stating she was suffering from a kidney ailment, the Court had instructed that a committee of doctors be constituted at NIMS to provide treatment. However, the jail superintendents violated the Court orders, taking the prisoners to NIMS without the knowledge of ACB court also.

In a press note here today, Lok Satta district president N. Srinivas and general secretary Prakash Holla urged Mr. Singh to take stern action against the jail superintendents for violating the High Court directions.
