Hyderabad, Sept 2: The Hyderabad High Court on Friday granted an interim stay on a lower court’s order for an investigation against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu idu in a cash-for-vote case. The common high court for Telanga and Andhra Pradesh in Hyderabad directed the Telanga Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to file a counter report on a petition filed by idu, seeking quashing of the lower court order. Justice Raja Elango adjourned the hearing for eight weeks. The Principal Special Judge for ACB cases on Monday ordered the anti-graft body to thoroughly investigate a petition filed by YSR Congress legislator A. Ramakrish Reddy. The legislator had sought a probe into idu’s role in the case. The ACB on Tuesday filed a memo in the lower court stating that it would probe and file the report before September whether there was evidence against idu, who is the president of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). idu, in his petition, argued that Reddy had no locus standi in the case. He also said that the ACB had already filed the fil charge sheet. The court heard arguments from all parties. (IANS)
