Authorities on Tuesday searched the homes of TDP MLA A Revanth Reddy and two other accused in a cash-for-votes scam that has become a major embarrassment for Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu following the emergence of an audio tape purportedly linking him to the scandal.
Officials of Telangana’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) searched the houses of Reddy, Sebastian Harry and Uday Simha at different locations in Hyderabad, the combined capital of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Armed with a search warrant, about 15 officials searched Reddy's home in Jubliee Hills, one of his lawyers said.
The ACB checked passports and documents related to bank accounts and land. The lawyer said the officials found “nothing relating to the case”.
The searches were conducted before dawn, hours before the accused were questioned by the ACB for the fourth consecutive day.
