Gymkhana stampede: Complaint lodged in HRC against Azharuddin
Rachala Yugandhar Goud has lodged a complaint to the Human Rights Commission seeking action against Mohammad Azharuddin
HYDERABAD: BC Group Secretary Rachala Yugandhar Goud has lodged a complaint to the Human Rights Commission (HRC) seeking action against the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) president Mohammad Azharuddin for causing distress to cricket fans over the India vs Australia T20 match tickets issue.
He urged the HRC to register a criminal case against Azharuddin, stating that he was behind the Gymkhana Grounds lathi charge. He also demanded that an ex-gratia of Rs. 20 lakh be given to the injured in the lathi charge and stampede.
The Joint Action Committee (JAC) members accused the HCA of failing to provide proper arrangements for the upcoming India-Australia T20 match to be held in Uppal and that they collected huge amounts of money from fans.
JCA members also pointed out that the HCA officials and other political leaders did not visit the hospital to console the injured people.
It was known that the HCA had decided to sell the tickets at Gymkhana Grounds in Secunderabad on Thursday wherein the fans flocked in large numbers, which led to a stampede and lathi charge.
