Cong ex-MP verbally abuses police inspector

Soon after the stir created by Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, former Rajya Sabha member and senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao has caught the limelight for reportedly abusing a police officer.

Rao verbally abused a police inspector when he had tried to convince Rao that he did not have the permission to address journalists at the MLA Media Point. Rao reportedly insulted police inspector Palaparthy Sudhakar on the Telangana Assembly premises. “Nee amma (your mother)! Who the hell are you to stop me? You are acting like a ruling party agent,” the former MP was heard saying to the inspector.

Rao reached the Telangana Assembly when Sudhakar was on duty at the media point. As only legislators are allowed to address reporters at the media point, Sudhakar, saluting the former MP, informed him of the regulation. ­The verbal abuse continued even as the inspector stood shocked.

Rao then nonchalantly completed his press conference and before leaving, asked Sudhakar which district in Telangana he was from. A hurt Sudhakar, who had served the police force for 20 years later expressed his feelings on Facebook. He even said that he will be resigning.

However, his superiors and well-wishers persuaded him against making such a move.  “What hurt me more was the silence of other police officers who were present there,” Sudhakar said.

Following a complaint bySudhakar, a case was registered against Rao under Sections 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and other relevant sections of the IPC.
