Hyderabad: Telangana Anti-Corruption Bureau, which is probing the cash-for-vote case, has moved the Supreme Court against the Hyderabad High Court’s order granting bail to TDP MLA A Revanth Reddy and two others.

A special leave petition has been filed seeking cancellation of the bail, ACB Director General AK Khan said.

The SLP was filed on the grounds that the investigation was still going on and the High Court had not appreciated the evidence against the accused, he told PTI.

Reddy, the prime accused, along with Harry Sebastian and Uday Simha, was released from Cherlapalli Central Prison here yesterday after getting conditional bail.

On 31 May, Revanth Reddy, the deputy floor leader of TDP in Telangana assembly, was arrested by ACB with Sebastian and Simha while allegedly paying a bribe of Rs 50 lakh to Elvis Stephenson, a nominated MLA, for supporting TDP nominee Vem Narendar Reddy in the Legislative Council election.
