“Though the CBI has summoned the YSRCP MP three times till now, on some pretext or the other he is escaping”, Rao said and added, “Felt that all these development as per the directions from the Tadepalli palace.”
“The State police system is trying to protect Avinash, who is an accused in the murder case and we have informed this to the Governor,” the TDP leader said.
