Three Telugu men are known to have been arrested in St. Charles County, Missouri, for beating a roommate. A section of the media associated this incident with the color of YSRCP out of desperation.
Here’s the inside story of the whole incident.
Sattaru Venkatesh Reddy, a native of Vinukonda in Guntur district, was actively involved in the YSRCP some time ago. His family is known for their involvement in politics at the Mandal level.
Later, Venkatesh moved to the United States and lived there for a few years. He served in the United States Army for a time, but suffered an injury that led to his discharge from service. His injury required regular massages in addition to other medications.
Meanwhile, two individuals, Sravan Varma Penumetcha and Nikhil V Penmatsa, close relatives of Venkatesh’s wife, also moved to the United States and joined Venkatesh. It is worth pointing out that Venkatesh got married to a girl Raju some time ago.
Eventually, an Indian student, a relative of Venkatesh, also arrived in the United States and joined Venkatesh. An Indian student helped Venkatesh and his family with daily help to earn a living.
Sravan Varma Penumetcha and Nikhil V Penmatsa live in two other houses. The student helped all three in his capacity.
According to sources, Venkatesh is short-tempered and was upset with his current situation. Inside sources suggest he may have yelled at Student or even manhandled him out of anger and a bad mood. This could have angered Student and prompted him to file a police report.
What is surprising is that the other two individuals, although innocent, are also involved in this affair. It’s unclear exactly why this collateral damage happened to them.
In conclusion, this entire episode seems to be a personal matter with no connection to YSRCP or Andhra Pradesh politics.
However, local Kammas, staunch supporters of the TDP, made it an issue by influencing a small local channel to cover the news. They claim that a politically influential figure, Venkatesh, was arrested in a human trafficking case. Ironically, they omitted Student’s name from the news to hide the fact that he is a close relative of Venkatesh, perhaps to play a better victim card.
Sattaru Venkatesh does not hold any position in the YSRCP and has not been involved in any party-related programs for the past two-three years. In such a case, how reasonable is it to link this matter to the party?
No responsible person wants to protect a wrongdoer; wrongdoing must be punished. However, attempts to distort the incident and associate it with unrelated individuals and political systems for indirect benefit are malicious.
Additionally, the Indian student, who claims to be the victim in this case, entered America on a student visa, as the St. Charles County, Missouri, prosecutor stated in the filing. charge. How can a person on a student visa be considered a victim of human trafficking?
Local Telugu people name one Chowdhary who is behind the exposure of this issue on a local channel pasting the color YSRCP.
Whether it is a domestic crime like killing your wife, assaulting a parent, or injuring a sibling, the law treats all offenses the same. The justice system must fulfill its role in handling the charges against Sattaru Venkatesh. But it would be unfair to attribute the crime to people unrelated to the incident.
