The Anti Corruption Bureau of Telangana Government has recorded the statement of Elvis Stephenson, the nominated MLA of Telangana assembly, who was offered a sum of Rs. 50 lakh in exchange of his vote in MLC elections under MLA quota last month at his residence by TDP MLA Revant Reddy.

It may be recalled that Revant Reddy was arrested and sent to judicial remand. In connection with this cash-for-vote, Stephenson-who complained to the ACB that he was being lured by TDP based on which ACB conducted a sting operation-appeared before the ACB on Wednesday.

The sources said that Stephenson mentioned Chandrababu’s name in his statement. A day before that the nominated Anglo-Indian Stephenson told at a private function that he was offered the money that he denied to take.

If buzz has to believed, Stephenson even mentioned that the total sum promised was five crore rupees out of which fifty lakh rupees were brought to his residence as an advance.

Statement Submitted to Nampally Magistrate Court:

The recorded statement of Elvis Stephenson was submitted to Third Additional  Chief Metropolitan Magistrate in Nampally of Hyderabad. It was reportedly sent in a sealed cover. 

Election Commission on Chandrababu Naidu:

All possible doors to come out of this infamous cash-for-vote scam seem to be closed to TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu. It is known that he has been bringing in the name of Election Commission and questioning as to how ACB would be handling the matter that’s in the purview of EC.

Apparently, Election Commission wrote to the ACB wherein it reportedly mentioned that there was need for in-depth investigation and none would be exempted if proved guilty.

Revanth Reddy Moves High Court for Bail


The ACB court in Hyderabad that is probing cash for vote scam has extended the judicial remand of the three accused in the case–Revanth Reddy, Sebastian and Uday Simha—for 14 days. As the earlier remand of the accused came to an end today, the ACB slueths have submitted a memo to the court stating that the report of forensic department is yet to reach them and the accused shouldn’t be granted bail today.
As the court denied them bail, the advocates of Revanth Reddy and other two accused moved High Court for bail. Revanth Reddy, in his bail petition, mentioned that the major investigation was already over in this case, he should be given a bail.

He has also mentioned that as a public representative, he would cooperate with the investigation officials. The lawyers of Revanth Reddy, meanwhile, told the ACB court that Revanth was allegedly framed in the case as a part of the political controversy.
