Cash-for-vote scam: TDP legislator granted 12-hour bail

Andhra_Pradesh_Legislative_AssemblyTDP legislator, A. Revanth Reddy was released from jail on Thursday on a 12-hour bail in the cash-for-vote scam to attend his daughter’s engagement.

Reddy was released from Cherlapally Jail here at 6 a.m. on the directions of a city court, which granted him bail for 12 hours. An escort team of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) took the legislator to his residence in the posh Jubliee Hills and from there to N. Convention Centre in Madhapur, where the ceremony began around 10 a.m.

The ACB personnel kept a close watch on the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader in view of the conditions imposed by the court. The special court for ACB cases had directed Reddy not to participate in any political activity and not to speak to media about the case while granting him bail.

TDP leaders both from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh attended the engagement. TDP president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu is also likely to attend the ceremony. Reddy, TDP’s deputy leader in Telangana assembly, was arrested by the ACB on May 31 while he was offering Rs.50 lakh to nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson to make him vote for the TDP-BJP candidate in the Telangana legislative council elections.

The ACB also arrested two aides of Reddy in a trap laid on a complaint by Stephenson.
