Andhra jail undertrial dies of dengue, TDP leader fears 'conspiracy' to kill Chandrababu Naidu
Rajahmundry (Andhra Pradesh) [India], September 22 (ANI): An undertrial prisoner at the Rajahmundry Central Prison in Andhra Pradesh died due to dengue while undergoing treatment at the Kakinada government hospital on September 19, state police said.
Following the prisoner’s death, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) General Secretary Nara Lokesh has expressed concerns over the health of his father and TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu who is lodged on remand in the same prison.
Nara Lokesh in a social media post on X on Thursday alleged that a conspiracy was hatched to eliminate Chandrababu Naidu in prison.
Prison Department DIG Ravi Kiran said "The prisoner, Ganjeti Weeravenkata Satya Narayana, had been on remand in Rajamahendravaram Central Jail since September 6 in a robbery case.”
The prisoner who hails from Dawleswaram was brought to prison on September 6 and as he complained of fever and vomiting he was admitted to the Rajamundry Government General Hospital and from there he was moved to the Kakinada Government General Hospital where he succumbed to dengue, the police official said.
Nara Lokesh in his tweet said that Naidu who has a Z+ category security, was lodged in the jail by implicating him in a false case. TDP General Secretary further said that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy would be held responsible if anything happened to Naidu inside the jail.
