Blast at Congress MP’s resort near HyderabadMay 29th, 2012 - 1:18 pm ICT by IANS
Hyderabad, May 29 (IANS) Congress MP L. Rajagopal’s resort on the city’s outskirts was damaged in a bomb blast, police said Tuesday.
The incident took place Friday night but police disclosed this only Tuesday. There was no words as to why it was kept under wraps for three dayus.
Walls and windows of the resort near Madhapur were damaged in the gelatin stick blast. The attackers left behind pro-Telangana pamphlets.
The watchman said he woke up to a deafening blast.
Rajagopal, an MP from Vijayawada, said it could be the handiwork of supporters of YSR Congress Party leader Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.
Rajagopal has been opposing the demand for a separate Telangana state. He is also a critic of Reddy, who was sent to jail Monday in a corruption case.
However, YSR Congress Party leaders alleged that Rajagopal himself was behind the blast to eliminate his first wife, Padma. They demanded a probe into the incident.
