TDP MLA held for rape



A three-member team from the Crime Investigation Department (CID) of the state police, arrested T V Rama Rao in Kovvur in the coastal district of West Godavari. The arrest was made two weeks after five female students of TVR College of Nursing in Nidadavolu town in West Godavari district complained to the state home minister and State Human Rights Commission that Rama Rao tried to molest them. Earlier on June 18, Nidadavolu police had booked the legislator for rape and murder of a student. However, the police could not make any progress in the case as it failed to find any evidence of the offence. The legislator had denied the charges and claimed that it was a conspiracy by his political rivals.

The case took a dramatic turn on June 4 when five students from Kerala appeared before the state home minister P Sabita Indra Reddy to complain that the legislator made a rape attempt.
