Pattabhi Rama Rao with the help of mediators for granting bail for his brother Gali Janardhan Reddy.
The CID confronted Janardhan Reddy’s relative G. Dasrathram Reddy with Somasekhar Reddy and grilled the duo on how the deal was struck to get bail for Janardhan Reddy. Dasrathram Reddy is already under arrest and his five-day police custody ended on Saturday.
Another Karnataka BJP MLA B Suresh Babu has already been arrested by ACB for involvement in the scam and one more Karnataka MLA Sreeramilu has also been issued notice to appear before it by next week.
