The Hyderabad High Court, on Tuesday, refused to grant YSR Congress Party Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy’s relief in the Nandigama case, in which he was accused of threatening a government official and preventing him from discharging his duty. 

Jagan had earlier moved the HC asking that the case against him be quashed. 

The case was filed in March by the Nandigama police, based on a complaint by the development committee of a government-run area hospital. 

This came after Jagan visited the hospital to meet those injured in a bus accident near Mulapadu, claiming 11 lives and injuring over 30.

The Leader of Opposition had allegedly snatched papers from a doctor, and pulled up the Collector A Babu and threatened to send him to jail.

The agitated Jagan had also criticised the government for its alleged efforts to save ‘Diwakar Travels’ the agency to which the bus belonged to. 

The bus belonged to Diwakar Travels owned by TDP MP JC Diwakar Reddy and the driver was allegedly drowsy.

Along with Jagan, a few party members were also reportedly booked under several charges.
