Nizamabad: Supporters of Armoor MLA Ashannagari Jeevan Reddy attempted to assassinate Sakshi reporter Kamalapuram Poshetti of the Nizamabad district's Makloor Mandal. On his way to cover ZDP chairman Vithal Rao's Raitubandhu Sambura event in Kottapalli on Saturday, he was attacked with iron rods by three thieves wearing monkey helmets while riding a two-wheeler near Vallabhapur village.

The thieves ran as farmers planting seeds in an adjacent field came running. Poshetti was taken to a Nizamabad hospital with critical injuries. Poshetti recently reported on the Rs 30 lakh irregularities at the Makloor Society fund. During the Raitubandhu celebrations in Metpalli on Friday, Vithal Rao referred to the MLA as an ineffective public representative.

The police station was notified of the incident.
