Nampally court summons Jagan in 2014 Huzurnagar poll violation case

Hyderabad: Nampally special sessions court for MLA's and MP's issued summons to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy and two others for violating the model code of conduct during 2014 Huzurnagar general elections. The other two include G. Srikanth Reddy and G. Nagi Reddy. The three were directed to appear before the court on 28 March.

For the first time, the special sessions court issued summons to a Chief Minister-rank official on the directions of the Supreme Court.

This was in connection with the 2014 general elections when YSR Congress had fielded a candidate from Huzurnagar. The united Nalgonda district police had accused Jagan and his then party members G. Srikanth Reddy and G. Nagi Reddy of organising a roadshow without permission. This was violating the model code of conduct, the police had said.

After seven years, the Suryapet police transferred the case to the MLA and MP special sessions court. The three have been booked under Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 143 (punishment for unlawful assembly) of the IPC.
