Telangana Congress working president and former legislator Revanth Reddy on Tuesday appeared before Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the cash-for-vote case. He was recently served a notice by the ED, appeared before it and was quizzed by the probe agency’s officials for several hours.
Sources said that the questioning will be continued on Wednesday in connection with the prevention of Money laundering Act (PMLA) booked against Revanth Reddy and three other accused in cash for vote scam.
It is learned that Revanth Reddy was accused of trying to bribe Anglo Indian MLA Elvis Stephenson to make a vote for TDP’s MLC candidate Vem Narender Reddy in the legislative council polls where Revanth Reddy is part of TDP then. Telangana Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) had initially registered an FIR against Revanth Reddy and other four and filed charge sheet against the four on July 27th, 2015.
Meanwhile, Revanth Reddy said, “KCR is making use of investigating agencies in targeting me but he cannot intimidate me. A four-year-old case is being dragged on intentionally to trouble me. I have appeared before ED today. They have questioned me on many things but I cannot reveal the details. And my fight against KCR will continue.”
