Cash-for-bail scam: CBI summons Sriramulu

August 09, 2012 10:56 IST
The Central Bureau of Investigation summoned Karnataka MLA B Sriramulu in connection with former minister Gali Janardhana Reddy cash-for-bail scam. He will be questioned by the Anti-Corruption Bureau of the CBI in Hyderabad. 


Sriramalu, a close aid of the Reddy brothers, was named in the scam by Kampli legislator Suresh Babu, another accused in the case. Babu had told the CBI that when the deal with the judge to get Janardhana Reddy bail was being planned Sriramulu was kept in the loop.

Babu had confessed to the Anti-Corruption Bureau that he, along with G Somashekar Reddy and an associate Dasharath Ram Reddy, got the funds to bribe judge T Pattabhi Rama Rao as per the instructions of Sriramulu.

CBI sources say that Sriramlu is indirectly connected with the case and whether or not to make him an accused would be decided once questioning is completed.
