Hyderabad: YSR Congress party candidate B Shobha Nagi Reddy, who was seeking a re-election from Allagadda constituency in Andhra Pradesh in the upcoming Assembly polls, on Thursday succumbed to her injuries sustained in a road accident in Kurnool district.
46-year-old Shobha, a sitting MLA, was seriously injured after the four-wheeler in which she was travelling turned turtle around 11.30 pm last night while returning after a election campaign in Kurnool. She was rushed to a private hospital at Banjara Hills here with severe injuries, where she died undergoing treatment.
A medical bulletin issued by Care Hospital on Thursday said “We are sad to inform Shobha Nagi Reddy, who was brought to Care Hospital on April 24 following a major road accident is no more.”
Two gunmen and the vehicle driver, who were travelling along with Shobha had also suffered injuries and were undergoing treatment at a hospital in Kurnool. Their condition is out of danger, a police officer said adding, “it seems the vehicle driver lost control while trying to take a turn as paddy was stored on the road.”
The legislator is survived by her husband former MP Bhuma Nagi Reddy, two daughters and a son.
