De­pressed man barges into Andhra Assem­bly


Aman in his late 20s, who was un­der­go­ing treat­ment for de­pres­sion, walked in­side the Andhra Pradesh Assem­bly by break­ing open a wooden door, lay­ing bare se­cu­rity lapses on the highly pro­tected premises re­cently. The in­truder — iden­ti­fied as Gu­jjula Ashok Reddy later — was seen loi­ter­ing around. He was ar­rested and pro­duced be­fore a lo­cal court. View­ing the stranger’s in­tru­sion as a se­ri­ous se­cu­rity lapse, the Saifabad po­lice de­cided to sub­mit a re­port on the in­ci­dent to the Spe­cial Pro­tec­tion Force pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity to the premises of A.P. and Te­lan­gana As­sem­blies.

The in­ci­dent left the Leg­is­la­ture sec­re­tar­iat officials red-faced. Congress MLC Ponguleti Sud­hakar Reddy, who vis­ited the Assem­bly premises, took se­ri­ous ex­cep­tion to the se­cu­rity lapse.
