VIVEKANANDA Reddy’s Daughter Urges EC to ensure Fair Probe into His Father’s Death

SUNITHA Narreddy, daughter of   former YSR Congress MP YS Vivekananda Reddy who was found dead in mysterious circumstances in his own house in Kadapa on March 15, has urged Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora to ensure fair probe into the ghastly murder. Sunitha said the investigation should not be under the state government as it is headed by YSRCP’s political opponent. She was trying to meet the Secretary to the Union Ministry for Home Affairs   to petition a fair probe into his father’s murder. “The issue has been an election campaign by Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu. He is directly supervising the case. He has  made irresponsible statements  by giving  it a political  colour  as Andhra  Pradesh  is going to elect  a new legislative  assembly  and members to the Lok Sabha. This is a huge conflict of interest,” Sunitha said. Sunitha submitted has submitted a representation to the CEC demanding a fair investigation be carried out into the “murder” without interference by the state government. Vivekananda Reddy was younger brother of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy. Sunitha said the Andhra Pradesh chief minister was making “wrong statements” which could hamper the investigation by the Special Investigation Team (SIT).She said Naidu’s remarks blaming her cousin and YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy for the “murder” might influence the SIT probing the matter.: I have given a representation to the CEC because I am concerned about the way the investigation is being done. I have asked the CEC to ensure a fair investigation. The chief minister has been making repeated statements that the murder was done by a family member and Jaganmohan Reddy is responsible for the same.“When SIT has not given its report, how is the chief minister able to know what the findings are and draw conclusions? How will there be a fair trial if the chief minister keeps making statements like these,” Sunitha said. Her mother will petition The Andhra Pradesh High Court urging for a fair investigation in the matter, she said (with inputs from the Deccan Chronicle).
