Sanghi brothers fight it out in the open over property share

By Syed Akbar
Hyderabad, Dec 25: The ongoing feud between Sanghi brothers came into open on Saturday with both the sides filing police complaints against each other, alleging attack with deadly weapons and damage to
personal property.
The police registered cases based on the complaints by the brothers, Mr Sudhir Sanghi and Mr Girish Sanghi, and posted a picket at Sanghi Polyesters Limited, as a precautionary measure. Trouble between the
Sanghi brothers has been brewing for quite a long time, but this is the first time that the fight became open with scores of people including employees taking sides with the estranged brothers.
The Sanghi brothers are divided on the issue of sharing property with Anand Sanghi and Sudhir Sanghi locked horns with Ravi Sanghi and Girish Sanghi.
Trouble began when Mr Sudhir Sanghi, along with his wife Usha Sanghi and son Siddharth Sanghi went to Sanghi Polyesters on Saturday with an order from the AP High Court that had set aside the ruling of the Company Law Board, Chennai. The Board gave a ruling in favour of Girish Sanghi and Ravi Sanghi. But Sudhir and Anand obtained stay from the High Court on December 15.
Sudhir Sanghi alleged that he and his family were stopped by the "hired goondas" of Girish Sanghi. "They attacked me, my wife, my son and my security guards. They tore my shirt and caused bleeding injuries to
me and my guards". Later, Sudhir and his supporters sat on a dharna demanding that the police take penal action against Girish Sanghi and those involved in the attack.
However, Girish Sanghi denied the attack and alleged that Sudhir Sanghi and his followers had vandalised the premises. "They have damaged my two cars and attacked my employees. Sudhir has not paid electricity bills of Rs 3 crore and sales tax of Rs 63 crore of the company. I sent him three smses on Saturday asking him for talks. But he brought 3000 people and attacked us," Girish Sanghi, a former Congress MP said.
Usha Sanghi alleged that though they had lodged a complaint with the police two days ago, the latter did not initiate any action against Girish. "We have represented our case to the home minister and the DCP, LB
Nagar. But no action was taken. The police intervened after we were attacked by the hired goons of Girish," she alleged.
Sudhir Sanghi alleged that the police were acting partisan and siding with Girish. "The police are not protecting us though we have open orders from the High Court," he pointed out.
Vanasthalipuram ACP Ravindar Reddy said Sudhir had not sought police protection. When asked why the police had not registered cases against those who prevented Sudhir from entering the Sanghi premises,
Ravindar Reddy said the police had not received a formal complaint.
"Since it involved legal issues, we will study the case and act accordingly," he said, denying any partiality in the investigation.
