Congress war room raid: Party approaches TS HC, seeks production of 3 workers

Telangana High Court issued notice to the government after former TPCC president Mallu Ravi filed a Habeas Corpus Petition praying for producing three workers before the bench.

A division bench of Justice A. Abhishek Reddy and Justice Sridevi heard the petition seeking direction to produce Ishan Sharma, Sasank Tatineni, and Pratap Mande before the Court.

All three persons were employed by Mallu Ravi to work in the `war room' created on the 4th floor of Inorbit Mall Madhapur. This room has been created to promote Congress in Telangana, keeping in view the election in 2023.

Mujib, Special Government Pleader, informed the Court that all three were issued notices under Section 41 A CrPC before being questioned.

All three workers were posting inappropriate posts on Social media platforms, against the TRS.

Terra Rajnikant Reddy, counsel for the three accused, sought compensation from the state as all three persons were mere workers employed by Congress to promote its activities in Telangana.

Justice A. Abhishek Reddy declined the plea of the petitioner stating that notice under 41A CrPC was issued to all three. Hence, the question of awarding compensation does not arise, he said.

The Court directed the state to file a counter affidavit in 4 weeks.
