A joint team of investigators from the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) carried out verification of bank accounts and interrogated government gunmen here on Thursday in connection with the cash-for-bail scam.
A team of ACB officials headed by DySP Raghupathi Goud from Hyderabad and a CBI team from Bangalore commenced verification of accounts in Axis, ICICI and Souharda Banks of Bellary city MLA Gali Somashekar Reddy, Kampli MLA T H Suresh Babu and close aides of the Reddy camp, said sources.
Three separate teams of ACB and CBI sleuths carried out the verification of accounts, sources added. The sleuths also interrogated government gunmen provided to Somshekar Reddy, Manjunath and Suresh Babu at the SP’s office, revealed sources. The ACB and CBI teams will stay in the city on Friday and are likely to interrogate aides of the Reddy camp for more details on the scam. The CBI will also keep an eye on people who met the then deputy conservator of forests Muttiah at Bellary Central Jail, who was brought here on Wednesday night in connection with a life threat complaint filed by him against former minister and Congress leader Diwakar Babu and mine owner Tapal Ganesh.
