Malkajgiri MP and Telangana Congress Working President A Revanth Reddy today got some much-needed relief in the sensational cash-for-vote scam.
A division bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justice Gawai and Justice Surya Kantha stayed the cross-examination of witnesses in the case until the completion of investigation by the state's Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).
The SC also issued notices to the ACB in the case, and asked the bureau to submit its counter in the case within four weeks.
The apex court passed these orders while dealing with a petition filed by Reddy.
Meanwhile, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a complaint in the same case before the city-based MP-MLA Court against Reddy, MLA Sandra Venkata Veeraiah and other accused in the case, and urged the court to commence the trial.
