The Hitavada - - 2ND FRONT -

IN­DUS­TRI­AL­IST and for­mer Par­lia­men­tar­ian L Ra­jagopal has tried to stop po­lice from search­ing the res­i­dence of his friend, an of­fi­cial said.

Late on Thurs­day, Ra­jagopal rushed to busi­ness­man G P Reddy’s house on Jubliee Hills af­ter learn­ing that the po­lice have ar­rived there.

He ques­tioned the of­fi­cers’ ac­tion with­out a search war­rant.

The for­mer Lok Sabha mem­ber from Andhra Pradesh en­tered into a heated ar­gu­ment with the of­fi­cers present. At one point he stopped them from en­ter­ing the house.

He also al­leged that the po­lice were ha­rass­ing Reddy by con­duct­ing mid­night searches de­spite his friend ex­tend­ing co­op­er­a­tion in the probe into a civil case.

When a Sub-In­spec­tor was speak­ing with his se­nior on the phone, Ra­jagopal snatched the de­vice and vented his ire on the per­son across the line.
