The attack happened when GV Sudhakar Naidu was on his way to Congress office after a meeting with party workers Yesterday. A group of four people who covered their faces with masks stopped GV’s vehicle near Radio Receiving Station in Gajuwaka and began hitting the vehicle used iron rods. The driver increased the speed in an attempt to escape from the goons who were following them on two-wheelers. Upon losing control due to the overspeed, the vehicle hit a divider and GV fell unconscious. The rival group ran away from the spot immediately.
Police reached the accident spot within few minutes and rushed GV to nearby hospital. As there are no signs of improvement, He was admitted in a private hospital in Vijayawada.
Cops suspect one among the Congress leaders who were unhappy over offering Gajuwaka ticket to an inexperienced person like GV instead of them might have plotted the attack.
