Andhra Pradesh Deputy Speaker Nadendla Manohar late on Thursday night instructed the Hyderabad City Police to immediately arrest those who assaulted Lok Satta Party MLA N Jayaprakash Narayan and senior Congress MLC Paladugu Venkata Rao on the Assembly premises.

Based on the report submitted by Legislature Secretary Raja Sadaram and Chief Marshal Arthur on the incident that happened at the media point, the Deputy Speaker instructed Police Commissioner A K Khan to register a case and arrest those behind the assault immediately.

The Legislature Secretary formally wrote a letter to Khan in this regard on the Manohar's instructions.

"We have asked the Police Commissioner to identify the culprits who attacked Jayaprakash Narayan and Venkat Rao and arrest them immediately," Manohar said.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy held a meeting with his cabinet colleagues in the Secretariat and discussed the incidents in the Assembly.

The government decided to discuss the issue in the Assembly tomorrow and initiate appropriate action against errant TRS and some Telangana TDP MLAs who created a bedlam in the House, government sources said.
