Three of the accused get bail in MLA poaching case

Hyderabad: Three of the accused in the MLA poaching case were granted bail by the Telengana High Court on Thursday. Conditional bail was granted to Ramachandra Bharati, Nand Kumar and D.P.S.K.V. Simhayaji by Justice B. Sumalatha, on a payement of personal bond of Rs 3 lakh and two sureties each.

According to the bail conditions, the accused should appear before the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on every Monday.

Previously, the High Court restrained SIT from arresting two of the other accused, Tushar Vellapally and B.Srinivas by directing them to cooperate with the probe.

The petition seeking transfer of the case to CBI is adjourned to December 6 by Justice B. Vijayasen Reddy.

A report on investigation along with the evidences including documents, CDs and pen drivers is submitted to the court by SIT.

Ramachandra Bharati alias Satish Sharma, Simhayaji and Nanda Kumar were arrested by the Cyberabad police from a farmhouse at Moinabad near Hyderabad on the night of October 26 when they were allegedly trying to lure four MLAs of TRS with offers of huge money.

Cyberabad police conducted the raid on a tip-off by Pilot Rohit Reddy, one of the MLAs. He alleged that the accused offered Rs 100 crore to him and Rs 50 crore each to three others.

The accused were booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Prevention of Corruption Act.

BJP general secretary B.L. Santosh, Bharath Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS) president Tushar Vellapally and a doctor from Kerala, Jaggu Swamy, lawyers Srinivas and Pratap Goud and Nanda Kumar's wife Chitralekha were also summoned by the SIT for questioning.

However, Santosh, Tushar and Jaggu Swamy have still not appeared before SIT.
