FIR against Jagan for misbehaving with Andhra Pradesh official

Vijayawada: A FIR was registered against YSR Congress party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Wednesday for misbehaving with a government official and preventing him from discharging his duties, the Andhra Pradesh Police said.

The police in Nandigama near here booked the case on a complaint by the development committee of a government-run area hospital.

The Leader of Opposition on Tuesday tried to snatch autopsy report from a doctor. He came to the hospital to meet those injured in a bus accident.

The YSRCP leader got into an argument with collector Ahmed Babu and accused him of corruption and threatened to send him to jail.

He alleged that a fictitious report was prepared without conducting an autopsy on the body of the driver of the bus, which fell off the bridge into a canal near Mulapadu, killing 11 people and injuring over 30.

The bus belonged to Diwakar Travels owned by TDP MP JC Diwakar Reddy and the driver was allegedly drowsy.

Jagan alleged the government was trying to save Diwakar Travels.
