Revanth Reddy, Congress’ working president in Telangana and Kodangal candidate for the upcoming elections, was detained in the wee hours of Tuesday from his residence in Kodangal and section 144 was imposed in the area.

He announced a shutdown in the town to protest the alleged police raids on his associates in the town to search for unaccounted money. He also threatened to stall the chief minister’s visit to the town.

Police, under the directions of the Chief Electoral Officer Rajat Kumar, served a notice to Revanth Reddy warning him against creating any disruptions and not to violate the code of conduct.
