APNGOs face contempt case

A contempt-of-court case has been filed in the High Court seeking action under the Contempt of Courts Act for alleged violation of the court order with regard to conduct of APNGOs’ meeting held at Lal Bahadur Stadium here on September 7.

On September 6, the High Court had allowed the Andhra Pradesh Non-Gazetted Officers’ Association to hold meeting at LB Stadium and directed it not to permit any person other than government employees and public servants to participate in the said meeting.

The petitioner, T Sriranga Rao, an advocate from the city, submitted that the APNGOs Association violated several conditions of the permission granted by the police. Several persons, who are not government employees or public servants, attended and addressed the meeting, he alleged.

“Besides, the employees came in a procession by shouting provocative slogans and gestures. Two constables and several others were beaten at the place of the meeting. The participants, who are not government employees, have deliberately and wantonly chosen to violate the court orders with scant respect for the same.”

The petitioner further submitted that senior IPS officer PSR Anjaneyulu deliberately and willingly chosen to disobey the court orders by personally taking Ghazal Srinivas, a singer, up to the venue of the meeting. Besides, APNGOA president P Ashok Babu declared that he was ready to face the consequences arising out of the violation of the court order and permission conditions.

Besides Ashok Babu and PSR Anjaneyulu, DCP (Central Zone) VB Kamalahasan Reddy, Dr P Mitra, Ghazal Srinivas, G Satyavani, Chalasani Srinivas Rao, Karem Sivaji, Ravi Shankar Jandhyala, V Lakshman Reddy and M Vamsi Krishna were named as respondents.
