MS Education Academy

After being arrested on Friday, he and a few of his employees from his chain of coaching centres were also transported to Gandhi Hospital for medical examinations. Later, they were brought before the Bhoiguda Railway Judicial Magistrate.

Police reported that Subba Rao, the director of “ASR Sai Defence Academy,” which has teaching facilities for Army job candidates at various Telugu States sites, was there on the day of the assault.

His words and opinions on suspected and known WhatsApp groups were also controversial in the days before the attack, and his complex strategy to put pressure on the government to roll back the Agnipath project was said to be for “vested interests,” it was pointed out.

Based on CCTV footage, admission registrations, and other data collected from the centres, investigators think that his students and colleagues were responsible for the violence and burning at the station. And a few of them have already been detained and taken into custody.

According to police, the coaching centres’ massive revenue loss from their “enrolment until selection” packages is the “vested interest.” The police are also investigating the alleged involvement of other centre owners in his network in organised crime and acts of violence.
