Hyderabad: The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Telangana has challenged in the Supreme Court the bail granted by the Hyderabad High Court to TDP MLA A. Revanth Reddy and two others in the cash-for-vote case.

The ACB, in its petition, sought cancellation of bail in view of the ongoing investigations in the case.

The probe agency argued that at a time when the investigations are at a crucial stage, the accused may tamper with the evidence and influence the witnesses.

Revanth Reddy, a legislator of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), was arrested by the ACB on May 31 when he was handing over Rs.50 lakh to nominated legislator Elvis Stephenson to vote for the TDP-BJP candidate in the elections to the Telangana legislative council.

Revanth’s two aides Sebastian Harry and Uday Simha were also arrested in a trap laid by the ACB on a complaint by Stephenson.

The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday granted bail to the accused. They were released from the Cherlapally Jail on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, ACB Director General A.K. Khan on Thursday called on Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. The meeting comes in the wake of Revanth Reddy’s release on bail.

Khan is believed to have briefed the chief minister on the status of investigations into the case.
