Relief for A.R. Reddy; Gets bail in cash-for-vote case

Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday granted bail to TDP MLA A. Revanth Reddy in the cash-for-vote case.

The court also ordered the release of two other accused, Sebastian Harry and Uday Simha, on bail.

Justice Raja Elango, who had reserved his order last week, pronounced it on Tuesday.

The accused were directed to surrender their passports, not to leave the city and to appear before the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) whenever summoned.

The ACB had arrested, Revanth Reddy, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) deputy leader in the Telangana assembly, on May 31 while he was handing over a bribe of Rs.50 lakh to nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson to induce him to vote for the TDP-BJP candidate in the Telangana legislative council elections.
