Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee working president A Revanth Reddy's friends Uday Simha and Sebastian appeared before the Income Tax officials' inquiry panel today.
For the uninitiated, the IT officials conducted raids in the residences of Simha and Sebastian, too, along with those in the residences of Revanth Reddy and Reddy's brother Kondal Reddy.
Revanth Reddy, Sebastian and Uday Simha needed to appear before the IT officials at Basheerbagh today. And while Simha and Sebastian did, Revanth Reddy abstained citing personal reasons.
The officials directed Simha to attend once again on October 3. Simha responded by alleging to the media that the IT officials were harassing him and his family in the name of raids, and that they would probably keep calling them again and again.
When asked about the raids in his brother's residence, Simha said that the officials had told him that they hadn't conduct any such raids, and that the ones who came posing as IT officials and seized his brother's gold ornaments, cash and some documents might be fake officials sent by caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's persons.
