Hyderabad | 10th June 2015
The ACB court granted interim bail to TDP MLA A Revanth Reddy on Wednesday, but refused full-fledged bail.
The court granted 12 hours' bail upon the plea of Reddy's counsel that Reddy's daughter Naimisha Reddy's engagement was scheduled for that day.
Earlier, Reddy's lawyers argued for full-fledged bail alleging that the case against Reddy was with bad motive and that the opponents had intentionally trapped him in the case as part of a political conspiracy.
The lawyers argued that the opponents had conspired to destroy Reddy and his political party, and stated that Reddy had no link with the case.
In response to Reddy's counsel's argument, the ACB urged the court not to grant full-fledged bail.
"The case will be tampered with if Reddy is given full-fledged bail," the ACB stated.
At this stage, Reddy's counsel urged the court to grant interim bail. Responding to the counsel's plea, the ACB court granted conditional interim bail from Thursday morning 6 am to evening 6 pm.
The court made it clear that during the bail time Reddy should not meet the media or any political leaders.
Lawyer Siddhartha Lotha argued on behalf of Reddy, and said that asking for a vote was not a crime in a democratic country, and alleged that the ACB had not recorded the complainant's version.
He also wondered over the raid of Reddy's house after nine days of arrest.
Lotha brought several cases to the notice of the court to support his arguments.
ACB special lawyer Surender Rao argued that there was a chance that the evidence would be tampared with if Reddy was given bail, and said that the ACB had no objection if a one-day bail was granted. (NSS)
