The brawl involving film actor Ram Charan Tej seems to be assuming new dimensions with a clear evidence of assault on the two techies by the film actor's security guards having come to light. The demand for suo motu action by police is gaining ground.
Ram Charan and his body guards roughed up software engineers Phanish of Kondapur and Kalyan of Uppal near GVK Mall in Banjara Hills on Sunday afternoon after the victims allegedly did not allow the actor's vehicle to overtake them since there was a red signal.
The Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) chairman Prof Kodandaram questioned the laxity on the part of police in not taking action against Telugu actor in spite of glaring evidence (pictures) showing the brutal assault on the software engineers.
The police did not react only because Ram Charan is the son of an influential politician from Seemandhra region and a central minister, criticised Kodandaram, while addressing a meeting here on Tuesday. The techies had said that their written complaint was not taken by the police and they were made to sit for a long time at the police station. "Police are following different yardsticks. While people from Telangana particularly activists are being subjected to hardships on one issue or the other, the same is not the case with public from other regions," T JAC chief said.
Telangana Advocates Joint Action Committee (TAJAC) demanded that a criminal case be booked against Ram Charan. A team of the TAJAC led by senior advocate Sriranga Rao met the city police commissioner Anurag Sharma and submitted a representation seeking action against the actor based on the visual evidence available. Sriranga Rao told media persons that the TAJAC would extend full support to the victims and appealed to them to come forward against the actor and his body guards.
However, police commissioner Anurag Sharma told the delegation that they did not receive any complaint from the victims. He assured the advocates that he would look into the visual evidence and certainly take action if any complaint was received.
