According to the details, It is alleged that Reddy, who is the strongman of the Sangareddy district, visited the United States on fake documents.
According to sources, Reddy had travelled with a woman and a child to the US in 2004. He had claimed they were his wife and child. Later it was found that he had submitted fake documents to show them as his family.
He has been arrested under the Passports Act, the Emigration Act, charges of human trafficking, forgery, and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
