Public interest litigation (PIL) on the death of former speaker of AP Assembly Kodela Siva Prasad, was filed by a fan of him in the Telangana High Court. The fan identified as Anil Kumar has included Telangana government, Banjara Hills CI and CBI as respondents in the petition.
“Being a fan of Kodela, I have many doubts about his death. There is a conspiracy in this and moreover, Kodela is not that weak person to commit suicide. Many politicians have cases against them and many went to jail in the past. Fearing cases and jail, Kodela will definitely not kill self,” said Anil after filing the PIL.
Anil concluded by saying, "Just to get sympathy factor, and avoid cases, Sivaram might have killed his father while Chandrababu wants a political mileage from this. I request the Telangana High court to summon CBI to probe Kodela's death mystery.”
While Kodela's nephew Sai too claimed that Sivaram might have a hand and even wrote to the top police officer of Guntur post-death, the police did not take any action on the letter so far and left it to the Telangana police who launched a probe as Kodela committed suicide in his Hyderabad residence.
