IPS officer AB Venkateswara Rao moves AP High Court for anticipatory bail
Senior IPS officer A B Venkateswara Rao has filed an anticipatory bail petition in the AP High Court. The plea came up for hearing before Justice Lalitha on Thursday. Appearing on behalf of the police official, lawyer Adinarayana Rao brought to the notice of the High Court that the AP government is planning to arrest Venkateswara Rao in the alleged irregularities in the purchase of security equipment. Government lawyer Srinivas Reddy objected to seeking bail without registering a case. The High Court served notice to the AP government and adjourned the hearing for Friday.
