2018 attack on Jagan: Accuseds mother writes to CJI seeking bail for son

Vijayawada: The mother of Janipalli Srinivas, who was accused of attacking Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan MohanReddy at Visakhapatnam International Airport in 2018, has appealed to the Chief Justice of India N.V Ramana to grant bail to her son.

In a letter to the CJI, Janipalli Savitri said her son Srinivas was released on bail on 25 May 2019 but was again picked up by the NIA on 13 August the same year. He is lodged at Rajahmundry jail and has already spent four years in remand, she wrote.

She said the NIA had said her son had used a knife in the attack while the CISF had called it a rooster knife. In fact, it was a small implement designed like a rooster knife used to cut fruits for salad. She said her son worked at Fusion Food at the airport and while serving tea to Jagan, the knife had brushed the CM's shoulder causing a small injury. The case was blown up out of proportion and Section 307 of the IPC was slapped against him, Savitri told the CJI in her letter.
