Angallu case | Telugu Desam Party chief Chandrababu Naidu gets anticipatory bail

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on October 13 granted anticipatory bail to former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu in the case related to a bloody clash that took place during his recent tour of irrigation projects, at Angallu village in Annamayya district. 

Justice K. Suresh Reddy gave the relief to Mr. Naidu, who is accused of inciting violence at a roadshow organised in Angallu, where scores of activists of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YSR Congress Party, and policemen were injured. The incident happened on August 4.
