After being in the custody of ACB officials for four days in the cash for vote case, TDP MLA A. Revanth Reddy and the two other accused were sent back to Charlapally Central Prison on Tuesday.

Earlier, special teams of the ACB searched the houses of Mr. Reddy, Bishop Harry Sebastian and Rudra Uday Simha but couldn’t find any incriminating evidence relating to the case. The investigators went to the house of Simha at Nagole where some foreign liquor bottles were found.

They handed over the liquor bottles to the Prohibition and Enforcement officials concerned. The ACB teams raided two houses of the MLA at Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills. Since the MLA checked into the present house recently, the house he lived earlier was also searched.

Another team carried out searches at the house of Sebastian in Vikaspuri of Erragadda. Documents relating to the bank accounts of the three accused were examined. Searches continued for nearly six hours in the three houses.

As the four-day custody of the three accused given by the special court to the ACB ended on Tuesday, the latter took them to Osmania General Hospital for the mandatory medical check-up. Later, they were produced before the judge who remanded them in judicial custody till June 15.

The TDP MLA complained to the judge that he was not provided with proper amenities while being in the custody of the ACB officials. He said that he got some infection as proper drinking water and other arrangements were not made.

Bail petition filed by the counsel for the accused would be heard by the court on Wednesday.
