    Andhra Pradesh police have arrested Macherla YSRCP MLA Pinnelli Ramakrishna Reddy from a factory godown in Isnapur near Sangareddy in Telangana on Wednesday. The MLA is A1 in the EVM smashing case at the Palvai Gate polling booth in Macherla on May 13.

    Earlier, Andhra Pradesh police issued a lookout notice for Ramakrishna Reddy in the EVM smashing case. The police have booked cases under various sections of the law and alerted all airports as they suspected that the MLA might try to leave the country. A team has left for Hyderabad to search for the MLA.
