Late last night, officers arrived at a function hall in Nandyal and served an arrest warrant to Mr. Naidu, although they couldn’t take him into custody due to protests by his supporters. A minor altercation ensued between the police and Mr. Naidu’s supporters. Mr. Naidu contested the arrest, claiming that there was no substantial evidence to support it, asking for proof of his involvement.

During the confrontation, TDP supporters questioned the police, who insisted that they possessed evidence, which was detailed in the remand report. The notice served to Mr. Naidu by M. Dhanunjayudu, a senior officer of the CID’s Economic Offences Wing, stated that he had been arrested at 6 am at R K Function Hall in Gnanapuram, Nandyala town. This arrest was classified as a non-bailable offence.

Mr. Naidu faces charges under sections related to criminal conspiracy, cheating, dishonestly inducing delivery of property, and Section 465, along with invoking the Prevention of Corruption Act. Following his arrest, a post on Mr. Naidu’s official social media account expressed his determination to continue serving the Telugu people and Andhra Pradesh.

His arrest came shortly after he publicly speculated that he might be arrested in the near future. During a public meeting in Anantapur district, Mr. Naidu stated, “Today or tomorrow they could arrest me. They may even attack me. Not one, they will do many atrocities.”
