HYDERABAD: Anumolu Sahitya, who is the niece of actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, was caught by the traffic police for driving under the influence of alcohol at Jubilee Hills on Saturday night.

Jubilee Hills traffic police inspector T. Srinivas Reddy said a woman, driving a Hyundai Verna car (AP09CF 0919), was stopped at Jubilee Hills Road No. 14. On conducting a breathalyser test, the reading showed that the woman had blood alcohol content (BAC) count of 40mg/100ml. The legally permissible limit is 30mg/100ml.

Mr Reddy added that the woman introduced herself as Sahitya, and the vehicle that was seized is registered in the name of Akkineni Nageshwar Rao. Sahitya was driving the car in a drunken state and was alone in the car when she was stopped by traffic police.

She has been directed to appear for counselling on Monday, and to the court on Tuesday. Sahitya may face fine of up to Rs 2,000 for drunken driving and imprisonment depending on the court’s decision on Tuesday. She is the daughter of Anumolu Naga Susheela, who is Nagarjuna’s elder sister. A total 23 vehicles were seized by Jubilee Hills police during the special drive on Saturday night, said Mr Reddy.
