Hours after the NCBC expressed discontent over the political pressures on Teenmaar Mallanna alias Chintapandu Naveen, the Chilkalguda police have arrested the Q News chief in connection with an alleged extortion case.
Sources have it that Lakshmi Kanth Sharma an astrologer had lodged a complaint with the Chilkalguda police alleging that Mallanna and his team are spreading fake news about him damaging his reputation.
Amidst this, reports over the state Chief minister KCR’s involvement in the arrest are making serious rounds in political circles. It can be recollected that KCR in his press meet yesterday gave an open warning to Mallanna followed by which the police jumped into action within hours.
The development came close on the heels of the apex court expressing discontent over the state police working under the influence of the ruling party.
