The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Sunday trapped TDP MLA Revanth Reddy for allegedly trying to give a bribe of Rs 50 lakh to nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson “to vote in favour of a TDP nominee” in Legislative Council elections scheduled on Monday.
“Revanth Reddy and his aide allegedly offered a bribe of Rs 50 lakh as advance as part of the Rs five crore deal. Reddy offered to make the payment of Rs 50 lakh to a friend of Stephenson,” a senior ACB officer said.
The TDP MLA and his aide had gone to the residence of Stephenson at Lalaguda in Secunderabad to hand over the cash when the ACB sleuths caught them offering the bribe, he said.
