The SIT constituted by the Telangana Government to unravel the truth in the sensational MLAs' poaching case, began its investigation
HYDERABAD: The Special Investigation Team (SIT), constituted by the Telangana Government to unravel the truth in the sensational MLAs' poaching case, began its investigation on Friday. The team headed by Hyderabad Police Commissioner CV Anand questioned the accused Ramachandra Bharti alias Satish Sharma, Simhayaji and Nandakumar alias Nandu at the Rajendranagar ACB office.
The accused were brought to the Rajendranagar ACB office after their voice samples were collected at the forensic science laboratory in Nampally earlier in the day.
The Telangana Government has constituted a seven-member SIT led by C V Anand two days ago to go deep into the high-profile case and unravel the truth from the sensational scandal in which four MLAs were targetted in an alleged plot to engineer a split in the ruling party and topple the State Government, as claimed by the TRS.
The announcement of SIT came after the Telangana High Court allowed the Hyderabad police to proceed with its investigation into the case. The High Court gave the ruling while allowing police custody of the accused.
