Rail roko case against ministers dismissed

Railway Court at Secunderabad today dismissed a five-year-old case involving three TRS ministers and 11 others.

The case was lodged against 14 persons, including K Tarakarama Rao, Nayani Narasimha Reddy and T Padma Rao (who are now ministers in the Telangana State government) in 2011 on charges of stopping a train and damaging properties belonging to Union government near Moulali Railway Station during Telangana agitation. The trio today appeared before the court.

  The Railway court, which heard the case for five years, today pronounced its judgment dismissing the case due to lack of evidence against 14 accused after hearing arguments of both prosecution and accused. During the hearing of the case, the ministers attended the court whenever summoned. (NSS)
