The Anti-Corruption Bureau is likely to summon Bellary urban MLA and former minister Sriramulu for enquiry in connection with the cash-for-bail deal involving jailed mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy.

The move comes after Kampli MLA TH Suresh Babu, who was arrested by the watchdog agency two days ago, revealed the role of Sriramulu before the investigators. Suresh Babu, in his confession, revealed that Sriramulu, who is also a relative of Suresh, played an active role in securing bail for Gali Janardhan Reddy by offering huge bribes to the judges.

Though the officials are tight-lipped over whether Sriramulu may also face arrest, they said they would be summoning him for enquiry.

"After enquiry, we will take a call on the further course of action," sources said.

Meanwhile, special teams are searching for Gali Somasekar Reddy, brother of Gali Janardhan Reddy and the main accused in the cash-for-bail case.
