It is not usual for the police to dare to intercept a car that visibly belongs to the chief minister. In this case, Andhra Pradesh chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy. But Telangana police went against the grain.
On Saturday, vehicle number AP 10 BD 7299 was found driving without a proper registration number plate. Instead it had put both at the front and the back, AP CM JAGAN in bold letters as its calling card. The Jeedimetla police stopped the car that belonged to Yesu Reddy of Pithapuram in East Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. The car was being driven by M Hari Rakesh, an engineer, when the car was stopped by the cops.
“When we asked him, he said that he had put the board in order to avoid toll fee and searching by the police and drive safely anywhere in the two Telugu states,” said Satyanarayana, Traffic inspector in Jeedimetla police station.
A FIR was filed accusing the occupant of cheating and fraud under sections 420 and 210 of the Indian Penal Code.
