Famous lawyer, Vikas Bansode was instrumental in getting mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy and a few others arrested in the infamous mining scandal in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. He visits his grandfather on the third Saturday of every month to organise a medical camp for the local people in Machilipatnam
However this time, Police have recovered an improvised explosive device (IED) and suspect it to be an attempt to eliminate Vikas. The explosive connected to a camera flash was found in an abandoned bag in the backyard of a house belonging to Bansode. Luckily it was discovered by a guard of the Supreme court advocate.
A report in Indian Express says that Police are investigating in the angle if Gali tried to eliminate Vikas. The Supreme Court lawyer earlier used to have Z-plus security owing to the threat from the mining mafia but later it was reduced to a group of six armed guards round-the-clock. Local police made sure that Vikas left to Hyderabad in safety.
