The High Court’s decision has come as bad news for YSR Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy as the court has dismissed a petition filed by Jagan. Another petition filed by YSRC’s Jogi Ramesh and party workers with regards to an accident case has been dismissed.

The petitions by these YSRC leaders sought to quash of the criminal case against them registered by the Nandigama Police in Krishna District.

Justice A Shankar Narayana dismissed the petitions as charge sheet was not filed by the police against the accused (Jagan and others). The Justice said, “Police have not yet filed the charge sheet and petitioners are at liberty to move quash petitions after the charge sheet is filed,” reported Deccan Chronicle.

After the accident, Jagan had alleged that officials were hiding facts regarding the accident and bus driver Adinarayana Reddy’s body was being taken out without performing an autopsy. Jagan snatched the report at this point and questioned the doctors why postmortem was not performed.

This was followed by a complaint lodged by Nandigama Area Hospital Superintendent K V Lakshmi Kumari, the police registered a case against Jagan and other party leaders under Sections 353 of IPC (Assault or criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging his duty).

The case was filed against the influential leaders following a bus accident which killed 11 and left several injured. The accident occurred on February 28, and along with Jagan, 14 party members too were booked by the Nandigama Police on charges of assaulting government servants, trying to snatch the postmortem report from a government doctor at Nandigama Government Hospital.

The accident had occurred at Penuganchiprolu in Vijayawada.
