Andhra Pradesh High Court Overturns Sudarshan Reddy’s Appointment as Director of Prosecutions

In a significant ruling, the Andhra Pradesh High Court has invalidated the appointment of J. Sudarshan Reddy as Director of Prosecutions (DoP) of Andhra Pradesh, citing irregularities in the appointment process. The court’s decision, prompted by a writ petition filed by additional DoP B. Ramakoteswara Rao, directs the state to appoint a new DoP within four months, following proper procedures and ensuring merit-based selection.

While Mr. Sudarshan Reddy will continue as the interim DoP during this period, the court underscores the need for a transparent and merit-oriented approach in the selection process, emphasizing the importance of adhering to statutory guidelines and legal frameworks.
