Note-For-Vote: Revanth Reddy Appears Before Court

Telangana TDP MLA A Revanth Reddy appeared before the Anti-Corruption Bureau court in connection with the infamous note-for-vote scam.
Hyderabad | 29th September 2016
Telangana TDP Working President and MLA A Revanth Reddy, and co-accused Udaya Simha today appeared before the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) court in connection with the infamous cash-for-vote scam.

In May 2015, Telangana nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson had lodged a complaint with the Telangana ACB alleging that he was offered Rs. 5 crores by Reddy to vote in favour of a Telugu Desam MLC nominee in the Legislative Council polls held on June 1.

The Bureau apprehended the accused while he was allegedly handing over a bribe to Stephenson as an advance without knowing that the latter was actually working with the ACB to nab them.

The ACB court, upon taking into cognizance the chargesheet filed by the State ACB under the Prevention Of Corruption Act and Criminal Conspiracy Act of the IPC, ordered the arrests of the TDP Working President along with Bishop Sebastian Harry, Udaya Simha and Mathaiah Jerusalem.

Jerusalem, however, moved the High Court against the charges laid on him, and was let off the hook upon further investigation.

TDP MLA Sandra Venkata Veeraiah was also arrested in the case later, and subsequently granted bail.

The details of the proceedings of the ACB court are yet to be revealed.
