On Monday night, Manish Goud and his friends -- Tarun Reddy, Sai, Nitish, Anirudh and Avinash Reddy – were on their way home from a function hall built by the TRS leader in Maisigandi. It was around 10 in the night and all six men were drunk. They tried to drive through the closed gate of the toll plaza.
One of his friends, Tarun Reddy, then pulled out a knife and injured one of the toll gate workers. His friends physically assaulted two others. In the cellphone footage recorded by one of the workers, Tarun Reddy can be seen threatening a bruised and bleeding man, whose clothes are torn.
By this time, the other staff tried to chase the drunk men, who escaped in their car. The toll gate staff then alerted the police, who caught the six men.
"They tried to run through a closed gate. We have filed a case of assault. They have been remanded in judicial custody for 14 days," said Srikanth, a sub-inspector of Kadgal police station.
