The East Godavari police booked a non-bailable case against Razole MLA Rapaka Vara Prasad for alleged attack on the Malikipuram police station. Accordingly, the police took the MLA and produced him before the Razole Munsif Magistrate who refused to hear the case. The Magistrate took strong objection to the manner in which an MLA elected by the people was arrested under non-bailable sections.
The East Godavari police officers were shocked at the development. They were left with no choice but to move the MLA back to Razole and give him station bail. Already, Jana Senani Pawan Kalyan passed critical comments on the police overreacting and producing the MLA before the court instead of giving him station bail.
The court response, Senani comments and Nellore YCP MLA assault incident pushed the government and the police into an embarrassing situation.
