A young man named Srinivas who works as a waiter at a restaurant at the airport attacked YS Jagan with a blade which is normally used during rooster fights. Srinivas approached YS Jagan to offer him a cup of coffee and suddenly attacked YS Jagan with the blade. YS Jagan suffered injury on his shoulder. Srinivas was overpowered by YSRCP Workers and handed over to the police.
YS Jagan continued his journey to Hyderabad after receiving first-aid from the airport staff.
This incident created tension at the airport with YSRCP Supporters gathering outside and shouting the slogans against Chief Minister and ruling TDP government. Police informed the media that they are questioning the accused. It is being said that a nine-page letter was also found in the pocket of Srinivas, however police didn't reveal the contents.
A case has been registered by the police on Srinivas.
