Journalist Beaten

A journalist was beaten up in broad daylight at Chirala on Sunday by Amanchi Swamulu, the elder brother of Chirala MLA Amanchi Krishna Mohan. The former had reported about the brothers’ alleged corrupt activities which led to his beating; the public merely watched the attack and filmed the same.





Amanchi Krishna Mohan is a lawmaker from the ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP) of Andhra Pradesh.

M Nagarjuna Reddy is a senior journalist who runs a local monthly magazine and also works for a local television. He found that the brothers had taken bank loans under a scheme for economically weak people and never repaid the money. The TDP legislator denied the claims by calling them baseless.

On Sunday, Reddy was knocked off of his two-wheeler when he was on his way to a shop with his son. Krishna Mohan’s brother and six others chased him down the street before bashing him with sticks. Reddy cried for help as passers-by watched helplessly.  

The journalist suffered grievous injuries on his head and legs and was rushed to the nearest government hospital. He was later moved to a private hospital in Guntur as his condition remained critical.

The incident came to light on Monday when videos of the attack were shared on social media. A case has been filed against the MLA’s brother and his aides.
