Ravi alleged that former speaker K Siva Prasada Rao’s son Kodela Sivaram took Rs 7 lakh from M Nagarjuna by assuring him a job of an attender in the Collector’s office of Guntur.
The victim paid Rs 5 lakh to Kodela Sivaram as first installment.
Later, his personal assistant G Nagaprasad demanded payment of the remaining amount of Rs 2 lakh before giving the appointment letter to the concerned person after three months.
The victim Nagarjuna immediately handed over the remaining amount of Rs 2 lakh expecting the appointment order in 2017.
Ravi alleged that the victim did not get the job so they had been demanding that Kodela Sivaram return Rs 7 lakh, for the past two years. He said that the victim lodged a complaint with the police but as no action was taken, they staged the protest.
