Case filed against Hanumantha Rao for shouting at Telangana police officer

Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], Mar.24 (ANI): A case has been registered against Congress leader V. Hanumantha Rao in Hyderabad's Saifabad Police Station under Sections 353, 294-B and 504 of the Indian Penal code (IPC) for shouting at a Telangana police officer.

Earlier in the day, lambasting a police officer for not allowing him to hold a press conference in Hyderabad, Rao has accused Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao of dictatorship.

"I hold press conference on public issues, on how the government is treating people and what public has to say on this. I have been doing this since a long time. The dictatorship of the Chief Minister is visible which is growing every day. I did not misbehave with anybody. The government is trying to shut the voice of people," Rao said.

He further said he has informed the media a day before holding the conference.

"A circle inspector came and stopped me. He did not have the right to do so. But the Marshall told me to continue with my press conference. I asked them why I am being stopped from holding the conference and on whose order," he added.

Rao said that he is a former MLA and he has the right to hold a press conference which he has been doing since long.

"I was insulted for no reason which I will not accept," he added. (ANI)
