Revanth Reddy’s lawyer says he had nothing to do with ‘doctored’ video of Amit Shah

“The police are still awaiting the response from those who were summoned today. A dozen more people are expected to appear in the coming days. Some people from Uttar Pradesh are expected to be questioned on Thursday,” said another police source.

Reddy’s lawyer, in reply to Delhi Police, said his “client does not operate the X handle @INCTelangana and “as such is unable to provide the information sought for by you”. He also said the Delhi Police notice “appears to be misdirected” and requested them to withdraw it immediately.

“Your attribution that ‘video tweeted/retweeted by you on your X/ Twitter handle’ is pre-conceived and incorrect. It is categorically stated that my client has nothing to do with the creating, uploading or tweeting/retweeting of the alleged video,” read the lawyer’s reply.

The lawyer said Reddy’s Twitter handle is @revanth_anumula and “no tweet or retweet of the alleged video” has been made from his handle. “Further, the official handle of the Chief Minister of Telangana on X is Telangana CMO. It is stated that in view of the above facts, your Notice appears to be misdirected and based on incorrect information and you are thus requested to withdraw the captioned Notice immediately,” the reply added.

Addressing an election rally in the Nizamabad Lok Sabha constituency of Hyderabad, Reddy said a case has been registered against him in Delhi based on a complaint from the Union home ministry. “I questioned the BJP. When I did that, PM Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah resorted to a vengeful attitude and registered a case against me in Delhi,” he said.
