Revanth Reddy, working president of the Telangana Congress and MP, appeared before the ACB court in Hyderabad today on Monday in a cash for vote case. MLA Sandra Venkata Veeraiah, Sebastian, Uday Sinha, along with Revanth, who are also the suspects in the case, appeared in court. The court reviewed the ACB's submitted FSL report and audio tapes.

On May 31, 2015, when Revanth Reddy allegedly offered Rs 50 lakh to MLA Stephenson to vote for TDP-BJP candidates in Telangana's legislative council election, Revanth Reddy was captured by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). The ACB put a trap on Stephenson's complaint and arrested Revanth Reddy, his assistant in the case.
