Hyderabad: Claiming that allegations of sexual harassment made against his son were ‘false, fabricated and politically motivated,’ Andhra Pradesh Welfare Minister Ravela Kishore Babu, on Sunday, said that the episode was a result of a conspiracy hatched by YSR Congress Chief Jaganmohan Reddy against him.

“If you want to politically fight me, fight me directly. Not indirectly at the cost of career and life of my son, who is innocent. The allegations against him are false, fabricated and politically motivated. It is nothing but a conspiracy hatched by Jaganmohan Reddy and his party,” he said.
Earlier in the morning, Banjara Hills police arrested Ravela Susheel, who was booked for outraging the modesty of a woman a day before.
Susheel surrendered at Banjara Hills Police Station in early morning hours will be produced before the Magistrate later on Sunday.

Susheel and his driver had followed a woman pedestrian in their car at Banjara Hills on Friday and attempted to pull her into the vehicle. After she escaped and raised an alarm, the duo was beaten up by a crowd.
CCTV footage showed that Susheel’s car had followed the woman for almost 1 km. The police had booked only the driver under the pretext that the other person in the car had not been identified.
