The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief was arrested in corruption case amid high drama and resistance from the party cadre after the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) served the arrest warrant.
“Will you arrest a former chief minister without even telling why he is being arrested?,” asked TDP in a tweet.
“CID has taken Chandrababu for a medical check-up after high Blood Pressure and diabetes were detected. We are approaching the High Court for bail,” said Naidu’s counsel.
Stating that it is a non-bailable offence, the notice said Chandrababu Naidu cannot be released on bail and he may seek bail through court only.
A minor scuffle was also witnessed between TDP workers and police personnel.
TDP leaders criticized the police for the late-night action against the senior leader.
Reportedly, some of the party workers were detained by the police.
Few days ago, Naidu had claimed that he could be arrested. “They may even attack me. Not one, they will do many atrocities,” said Naidu pointing out to YSRCP government.
Vowing that he will never compromise, Naidu, who is also Opposition leader in the state assembly, had said his journey will continue until justice is achieved and drove home the message that the state is important.
