TRS leader killed in road accident

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Nalgonda constituency In-charge Dubbaka Narsimha Reddy’s brother, Dubbaka Satish Reddy died in a road accident here, early on Friday morning.

According to the police, Satish Reddy, 45, was returning to his home in Chityala mandal from Rajahmundry when his white car (AP 37 BU 3366) crashed into a stationary lorry at around 4.30 a.m. on the Narketpally flyover. “The foodgrains-laden lorry from Gudivada to Hyderabad broke down on the flyover and was parked on the right lane with no precautions. The parking lamps also were off,” Shaligourarm Circle Inspector Subbarami Reddy said. The police registered a case against the lorry driver for causing death due to negligence and added related charges.

“Mr. Reddy must have been under the impression that the lorry was in motion. On realising that it was stationary, a sudden steer to the left lane led to spinning of the vehicle and coming to a sudden halt,” the police believe. The airbag safety did work but couldn’t prevent the death. Nalgonda Government General Hospital after post-mortem identified the cause of death as head injury.

A TRS party member, Satish Reddy was a businessman and used to travel from Chityala to Rajahmundry three or four times in a month, sources close to the family said.

He is survived by wife Dubbaka Mamatha, an MPTC of Nereda, their native village, and a daughter who is studying standard VIII.

Nalgonda MP Gutha Sukender Reddy, Minister for Energy and S.C. Development G. Jagadish Reddy, MLA Vemula Veeresham, Congress MLA Komatireddy Venkata Reddy, party members and workers from the constituency and those from other political affiliations were also present with the bereaved family.
