MLA Roja injured due to alleged harsh behavior of police

Saturday, December 19, 2015

YSR Congress MLA from Nagiri RK Roja was injured today at the Assembly premises when the police allegedly attempted to take her into custody. YSR Congress leaders alleged that the police acted in a harsh manner while attempting to take Roja into custody. It was known that Roja was suspended for a year by Speaker Kodela Sivaprasad yesterday for allegedly making derogatory comments at the Chief Minister.

Roja was stopped by marshals when she attempted to enter the Assembly premises today. The YSRCP MLAs got into a verbal duel with the marshalls and during the course, the police attempted to take Roja into custody forcibly when she repeatedly tried to get into the Assembly premises. When the police attempted to take her into custody, Roja fell down and fell unconscious. It may be recalled that Roja was suspended for a year for allegedly using unparliamentary language in the Assembly when the discussion on call money racket was happening.

YSR Congress chief Jagan Mohan Reddy went to Nampally police station to speak to Roja. He questioned the police on their harsh behavior during the arrest. As sugar levels have come down, Roja was later shifted to NIMS for treatment.
