Bribery charges: Case filed against former Union minister

Hyderabad: Police in Khammam district of Telangana has registered a case under the SC/ST Atrocities Act against former Union Minister Renuka Choudhary following a complaint that she allegedly took Rs.1.10 crore by promising an Assembly ticket to a local leader ahead of elections last year and abused his wife when she sought return of the money.

The case was registered following an order by High Court in Hyderabad on the complaint by B Kalavati who alleged that Choudhary took the money from her husband Ramji for getting the party ticket to contest from Wyra Assembly constituency in Khammam district, according to Khammam circle inspector Sridhar. Ramji has since died.

The complainant alleged that Renuka Choudhary abused her by her caste when the money was sought to be returned, he said.

The case was registered after the court sought to know what action has been taken, Sridhar said, adding that charges of cheating were also there.

The matter would be investigated now following the registration of the case, he said.

“This is totally baseless, unsubstantiated and politically motivated. I have never met this woman in my life. I can swear by that. Such unfortunate things happen in politics,” Chaudhary said when contacted.
