IAS files criminal case against AP minister

 

Papa Rao, who served as Home Secretary of Assam and also with the United Nations during his career, said in his complaint to Medchal police under Cyberabad Police Commissionerate, that the minister’s statements attracted criminal liability under Sections 189 and 124 A, read with Sections 107, 115, 503 and 511 of Indian Penal Code.
It may be recalled that Venkatesh, while addressing a public meeting in his native Kurnool on July 13, remarked that non-performing bureaucrats should be shot dead. After the remarks kicked up a controversy, the minister remained unapologetic and went on to say that even non-performing politicians should also be shot dead. He also refused to retract his statements, Papa Rao said, attaching various newspaper reports quoting the eccentric minister.
