Seven dead after fights at SC maximum security prison
Lee County Fire & Rescue says multiple agencies were called into assist with the "mass-casualty incident" at the prison. At least seven inmates were killed and 17 injured when a prison melee broke out at a SC prison, officials said.
Andhra Pradesh police have made a decision to beef up security across the state in the light of the day-long bandh being observed by the people's forum.
Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu will sit on a day-long fast on his birthday - April 20 - in protest against the Centre's refusal to give Special Category Status (SCS) and fulfil the assurances given in the Rajya Sabha at the time of bifurcation.
The Jagan Reddy-led YSRC hit back, accusing the Chief Minister of adopting "double standards". "Why this intimidation? As long as they are peaceful, we will continue all forms of democratic protests", PTI quoted Rambabu as saying.
He alleged that the state government had been issuing notices to those supporting the bandh, saying cases would be booked against them.
Rambabu also stated that Naidu had no right to protest against a shutdown as a bandh was a form of democratic protest.
However, the ruling TDP led by N Chandrababu Naidu has opposed it.
The Protests for Special Status for Andhra Pradesh threatens to intensify with every passing day and can further add to the troubles of the government in Centre.
