The incident, which occurred in Surampally village of the Daulatabad mandal, caused immediate concern, with N Swetha, Siddipet Commissioner, providing reassurance about Reddy’s safety. Swetha informed ANI, “MP Kotha Prabhakar Reddy is safe. He has been shifted to Gajwel. The alleged accused is in custody, we are investigating the matter.”Television footage captured the unsettling scene of Prabhakar Reddy tending to his stab wound in the stomach to stop the bleeding while seated in a vehicle. The assailant, as reported by PTI, was confronted and “beaten up” by some local individuals.

Reddy, a current MP from Medak in Telangana, assumed the position in 2014 when KCR vacated the seat to become the chief minister. Recently nominated as the candidate from Dubbak, he is facing competition from the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Raghunandan Rao in the upcoming polls.
