HYDERABAD: In a relief to Telangana TDP MLA A Revanth Reddy, who has been behind bars since May 31 after the cash-for-vote scam surfaced, was granted conditional bail by the Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday. Due to procedural delays, he is now likely to be released on Wednesday.

Besides Revanth Reddy, the court also granted bail to the other accused, Harry Sebastian and R Uday Simha. Even as celebrations erupted at Revanth’s residence, the Telangana Anti-Corruption Bureau made it clear that it would approach the Supreme Court seeking cancellation of their bails. While allowing the bail petitions, Justice Raja Elango observed that pending receipt of the forensic science laboratory’s report and the alleged absconding of one of the accused in the case, Jerusalem Mathaiah, were no grounds for rejection of bail.
