Hyderabad: The Banjara Hills police took 12 Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLAs into preventive arrest when they tried to stop the convoy of Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy when he went to visit former BRS Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy at his residence after news broke that he was joining the ruling Congress on Friday morning.

The police booked them under sections 353 (obstructing public servant from discharging duties) and 448 r/w 34 (committing house trespass) of IPC.

However, the chief minister’s office has sought a report from the ACP on security breach at Pocharam’s residence, as Balka Suman had somehow managed to enter the house even as Revanth Reddy was inside the house. West zone DCP Vijay Kumar went to the house to see how Suman breached the security.
