TDP MLA targeted on social media files plaint at Disha PS

RAJAHMUNDRY: Rajahmundry city MLA and TDP leader Adireddi Bhavani on Monday lodged a complaint at the Disha police station here, alleging that derogatory remarks were directed at her on social media.
The comments were made following a speech by the MLA in the assembly on December 16, 2019 and later brought to the notice of the speaker.
Bhavani said she lodged a complaint when no action was taken, adding that no action has been taken against the culprits till date.
The legislator said people may lose faith in the Act and the police stations set up under it if investigation is delayed. Other TDP functionaries present at the police station claimed that the government had set up Disha police stations only in name. The police, they added, had said the case would not be investigated under the Act.
Rajahmundry (urban) additional SP K Latha Madhuri said as the case falls under the limits of the assembly secretariat, the police would proceed only after taking a legal opinion, adding that the complaint was lodged 53 days after the incident.
The additional SP said similar complaints were lodged by two women from Eluru in West Godavari and Amalapuram in East Godavari, which did not fall under their jurisdiction, but all three complaints were received and action initiated after taking a legal opinion. She added that police stations set up under it would be a driving force in curbing atrocities against women and children.
