HYDERABAD: Lasya Nandita, one of the youngest MLAs in the Telangana Legislative Assembly, tragically passed away in a road accident on Friday morning on the Outer Ring Road in Patancheru.

The incident occurred on the outskirts of Hyderabad.

Inspector Praveen Reddy of Patancheru informed TOI, “The MLA died in the accident, and the driver was injured. The driver, who was unconscious, and the gunman were other occupants of the vehicle apart from the MLA, who was seated in the front.
