Ananthapur: The police on Tuesday arrested Balaji, brother of the Telugu Desam Party MLA, Ms Paritala Sunitha, and 11 others in connection with the murder of Tagarakunta Konda Reddy.
Presenting the accused before the media, the police said that the 11 persons were the prime suspects in the murder of Konda Reddy. The police recovered three revolvers and four sickles from the accused.
It was being suspected that the murder of Konda Reddy was in retaliation for the brutal slaying of Telugu Desam party MLA, Paritala Ravindra, as Konda Reddy was accused no. 14 in the murder case. The brutal murder of Konda Reddy was the result of bitter factional feuds in the district. (NSS)
