New Delhi: The Kadapa police in Andhra Pradesh on Monday arrested a local YSR Congress leader and Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s relative, YS Konda Reddy, for allegedly demanding and taking bribes from the owners of a construction company in Chakrayapet Mandal on Monday. 

The accused, YS Konda Reddy, was the YSR Congress Party in charge of Chakrayapet Mandal of YSR Kadapa district, the home district of Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister’s relative was allegedly threatening a construction company and demanding money for allowing certain road works in the area. The construction company was engaged in the development of Vempalli-Rayachoti road in Kadapa district.

Following a complaint raised with the Chief Minister over his relative’s threats, Jagan reportedly directed the Kadapa police to take stern action.

Accordingly, the Chakrayapet police registered a case against Konda Reddy and arrested him.

Notably, Konda Reddy’s call data revealed that he made many calls to the construction company representatives in recent days. The accused was produced in a local court and remanded to judicial custody.
