Ranadheer Reddy, the relative of Uday Simha, who in turn is a close friend of principal accused in the "cash for vote" case and TPCC working president A Revanth Reddy, today claimed that he had no links with the case, and that the IT raids were held in Revanth Reddy's residences.
Ranadheer Reddy said that Uday Simha was a family friend and had given him a hard disk and a bank locker key saying that he was vacating the place he was staying at, and that the police had seized the disk and the key during the IT raids at his residence two days back.
Ranadheer Reddy said that he had answered all the questions by the police. He also said that the police had issued notices asking him to appear before them again after three days.
Meanwhile, it has come to light that it was the task force police that had conducted the raids on Ranadheer Reddy's residence at Nagole's Jaipuri Colony on Sunday night. The task force police had claimed that they were IT officials and picked up Ranadheer Reddy, and had dropped him back at his residence on Monday midnight amidst dramatic developments.
The police had taken Ranadheer Reddy, Sebastian and Kondal Reddy for interrogation. The police also took Rs 2 lakhs and a cell phone away with them.
"The police have reassured me that they would return the cash and gold taken by them during the raids," Ranadheer Reddy said.
