Two Sons of Telugu Desam Party MP of Hindupur, Nimmala Krishnappa and five others were arrested for allegedly ransacking a toll plaza at Bhagepalli on National Highway 7 in Chickballapur district. All the seven were later released on station bail. MP himself was also involved in a similar incident at the same toll plaza in May 2015. As per the report, the accused were traveling in separate vehicels from Gorantla in Andhra Pradesh to Bengaluru. When the toll plaza staff at Bagepalli asked them to pay the toll, they didnot oblige. As the staff insisted on payment, argument escalated and resulted in manhandling of the staff.
