In the past two days, the SIT has called Tushar Vellappally, Jaggu Swami, B Srinivas, and BL Santhosh.
According to authorities, Ramachandra Bharathi, one of the defendants in the case, and TRS MLA P Rohit Reddy had a taped discussion in which Santhosh’s name was mentioned. The audio recording in which a voice claiming to be that of Bharathi states that he would provide Santhosh the names of the other three MLAs and that he will visit the city when everyone is prepared. “There is no mistake about this since I really forced Nandu sit down with Santhosh to talk about it,” the voice continues. He clearly stated that you should move through with this and he will handle the rest.
