Amravati: Andhra Pradesh Police is once again under the scanner. Here, not applying mask to a young man became so heavy that he lost his life. The police had detained the man from the checkpost of Prakasam district on charges of not putting a mask on and riding a bike in a dangerous way. While there are questions on the police system due to the vandalism during the surveillance of the police, the politics of Andhra Pradesh has also become hot.
Kiran Kumar, a resident of Chirala Town in Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh, was detained by the local police from the Kothapet checkpost on 18 July. He was detained in very light streams. But later the police said that Kiran had drunk alcohol.
Inspector Feroz said that on the 18th at Kothapet check post at around 5.30 am, our constable stopped two youngsters Shini Abraham and Kiran Kumar from riding the bike dangerously. Both did not even put on masks. When he was stopped, he treated our staff in the wrong language. He was intoxicated by alcohol. He was also finding it difficult to restrain. Meanwhile, Inspector Vijay Kumar was informed about the case on wireless. Vijay Kumar came and was taking both of them in his car. During this time, Kiran jumped from the car and got severe head injuries.
After this, Kiran was first taken to the government hospital in Chirala but when the condition worsened she was taken to Guntur City Hospital. Where he died on Wednesday during treatment.
On the other hand, the young man’s father Mohan Rao said that Shini Abraham, Kiran’s friend, told me everything. He was with Kiran at that time. The police brutally killed my son. He said that if he had done something wrong, he would have sent him to jail. My son was neither a crook nor a thief. After losing his beloved, the disgraced father is blaming Inspector Vijay for his son’s death. They have demanded justice.
Meanwhile, the opposition Telugu Desam Party has continued to attack the ruling YSRCP government, giving ethnic color to the case. They say that the government, which came to power with a strong majority, is sitting close to the misdeeds of the police department.
At the same time, amidst the questions being raised on his police, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has ordered an inquiry into the incident.
