Jaganmohan Reddy Stabbed At Vizag Airport
Andhra Pradesh politician Jaganmohan Reddy suffered minor injuries on Thursday after being stabbed at the Vishakhapatnam airport by an employee. The attacker, J Sriniwas Rao, 30, claimed to be his big fan. The 45-year-old YSR Congress leader was seen with blood on his left shoulder after being stabbed with a sharp object — a small blade apparently used in traditional bird fights.
“Such cowardice acts will not dissuade me but only strengthen my resolve to work for the people of my state,” Jagan Reddy, the leader of opposition in Andhra, tweeted.
The attacker allegedly entered the VIP lounge to serve coffee and approached Mr Reddy, who was sitting with his supporters, claiming he wanted a selfie with him. When the politician obliged, Sriniwas allegedly pretended to take a picture and then struck him with the knife.
“He seems to have done it for publicity. We have found a 9-10 page letter from his pocket which we are studying to establish a motive,” said police officer RP Thakur.
