Hyderabad: The Crime Investigation Department
(CID) today began its probe into the Mahbubabad violence that
erupted during the `Odarpu yatra` of Congress MP Y S Jagan
Mohan Reddy, in which 24 people were injured.

Three teams of the CID, led by Additional DGP A
Sivanarayana visited Mahbubabad town and the railway station,
which witnessed a group clash and heavy stone-hurling between
pro-Telangana activists and followers of Jagan on May 28.

"We have begun the probe. We have collected the documents
and the investigation is in very preliminary stage," the ADGP
told PTI.

Nine Telangana statehood supporters had suffered bullet
injuries after gunmen of Congress legislators fired on them.
Besides, eight policemen and seven civilians were also injured
in stone-throwing at the railway station.

Defending his department, state DGP R R Girish Kumar, had
yesterday dismissed reports about police failure to prevent
violence.

The top cop had asserted that police did not create any
hurdles for Jagan`s yatra and in fact took all possible
precautionary measures to ensure that it moved peacefully.
