Panduranga Rao panel submits report

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The Justice Panduranga Rao Commission submitted its report on Mudigonda firing incident to Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy on Wednesday at the Secretariat. Sources said the report faulted political leaders for not being cautious by leading agitations on issues.

The report also reportedly castigated three policemen in connection with the firing. The Communist parties observed a Statewide bandh on July 24 last year to highlight land related issues, when the police opened fire on agitators at Mudigonda in Khammam district resulting in the death of seven of them. Following public uproar, the government ordered a judicial enquiry.
