Hyderabad: TPCC chief Revanth Reddy’s sensational “cash-for-vote” case has again reached the Telangana High Court.
The Supreme Court on Monday concluded hearing on a petition filed by Revanth Reddy seeking an opportunity to cross-examine five witnesses in the cash-for-vote case at one go.
The special court also ordered that the witnesses involved in the case be cross-examined separately. The court had rejected Revanth Reddy’s plea to cross-examine everyone at the same time.
Revanth Reddy had challenged the order of the special court in the High Court. The HC upheld the decision of the special court. Following this, Revanth Reddy approached the Supreme Court against the High Court order.
In May 2021, the Supreme Court heard the case filed by Revanth Reddy for questioning of witnesses. On May 28, 2021, a bench of Justices B R Gavai and Surya Kant directed that a decision on the revision petition filed by Revanth Reddy be taken within five weeks.
The order stated that cross-examination of the witnesses in the trial court should not take place until further orders.
