In his petition, which was filed Wednesday, Reddy stated, "The instant writ petition is being filed by me (Jagan Mohan Reddy) aggrieved by the abuse of the entire criminal justice administration by Respondent No.1 (State of Andhra Pradesh) headed by the Government presided by Respondent No. 5 (CM N Chandrababu Naidu) and for complaining of various wrongful actions conducted by Respondents No. 2 (DGP, AP), No.3 (ACP, North Sub Division VSP City), No.4 (SHO, Airport PS) at such behest and for espousing and unearthing a cause of serious conspiracy that needs to be properly investigated under the criminal justice administration in terms of the constitutional and legal provisions. The failure of the Respondents to undertake such actions in the legally provided manner is being challenged as unlawful, ultra vires and unconstitutional in the premises indicated hereinafter."

Reddy further demanded that any appropriate independent agency, which does not function under the control of Andhra Pradesh government and its Director General of Police (DGP) should probe the matter.

He also alleged various wrongful actions taken by the DGP of the state and assistant commissioner of police, North division, Visakhapatnam city at the behest of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.

The petition stated that the reason behind demanding a thorough unbiased probe in the alleged murder attempt case is the ignorance attitude of the Andhra Pradesh Police.(ANI)
