What are you trying to cover up by using students as shields? Revanth to KCR on drug raid

Hyderabad: The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) chief Revanth Reddy on Tuesday said the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government is turning Telangana into a drugs haven like the state of Punjab.

Addressing the media on Tuesday, Revanth attacked Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao over the task force raid at the Pudding and Mink pub at Radisson Blu Plaza, Banjara Hills, and said the government is toying with the future of young students by going after them rather than catching the real culprits.

"People go to pubs for different reasons. Some go for drugs, some for consuming alcohol, some for food, and some go to meet friends. It is the duty of investigative agencies to find out who did what. Why did the government let go of everybody when you could test all of them and find out? What are you trying to cover up by using young students as shields?" he asked.

The state government's whip, Balka Suman, had alleged that Pranay Reddy, one of the people involved in the pub activity, is a relative of Revanth Reddy. In response to that, Revanth said he is ready to bring Pranay to any investigative agency and make sure that his blood, hair, and urine samples are submitted for a thorough investigation.

"You have arrested him and put him in a police station. Have we demanded his release? A thorough investigation should happen," he said.

Revanth demanded that a Special Investigative Team (SIT) comprising officers from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) should be ordered.
