After evading the police for over three days, Vijayawada Central MLA (TDP) Bonda Umamaheshwara Rao’s son Siddarth was finally arrested on Thursday in connection with the death of an engineering student in a car crash on the busy NH-9 near Yedlapadu on Sunday evening.
Siddarth and his friend Jai Sivaram were produced before the Chilakaluripet court.
An engineering student, Y Vijaya Nagendra (20), was killed as two cars collided with each other during a car racing, allegedly organised by Siddharth. The MLA's son has been absconding since the death became public.
Cases were booked under IPC 304 A (causing death of any person by committing any rash or negligent act not amounting to culpable homicide) and IPC 337 (causing hurt by an act endangering life or personal safety of others).
