Hyderabad: On the second day today, Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) pilot MLA Rohith Reddy appeared before the Enforcement Directorate investigating the money laundering case.
The BRS legislator from Tandur was asked by the ED officials to appear before them at 10:30 am, but Rohith Reddy reached the ED office around 3:00 pm. He told reporters that the reason for his late arrival was that he had to attend the Ayyappa puja.
Tandur MLA entered the ED office with all necessary documents and records of financial transactions. Earlier, Rohith Reddy through his personal assistant had sent a letter to the ED officials and sought more time to appear, but the officials did not agree.
Rohith Reddy was questioned for six hours on Monday. After coming out of the ED office, he told the media that he answered all their (ED) queries. He said that the ED officials have not clarified that they were called in that case.
Notably, BRS MP Rohith Reddy alerted the Hyderabad police about the alleged conspiracy to buy Telangana ruling party MLAs. The police later arrested Ramachandra Bharati, Nandu Kumar and Simhayaji Swamy at a farm in Moinabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad on October 26.
