Telangana Home Minister Mohammad Mahmood Ali has faced strong backlash from media and social workers for blaming veterinary doctor Priyanka Reddy for not calling the police.
Minister made this comment while speaking to a Television channel on Friday. “The "doctor was educated" and it was "unfortunate" that the deceased veterinary doctor dialled her family and not the police,” Minister said. He also said had the victim called the police instead of calling her sister, "she could have been saved". The Telangana home minister said, "The doctor was educated. She still called her sister instead of dialling 100."
"We are saddened by the incident; police are alert and controlling crime. It is unfortunate that she called her sister and not '100', had she called '100' she could have been saved," news agency ANI quoted Mohammad Mahmood Ali as saying.
