Andhra Pradesh ACB registered a case against YSRCP MLA Kotamreddy for his involvement in Cricket booking. AP DGP has transferred the case to ACB along with the investigation report. This isn’t the first time Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy’s name has been heard in the cricket betting cases. The police managed to find crucial evidence of Kotamreddy meeting famous bookie Krishna Singh in few hotels in Vijayawada. The related CCTV footage, hotel bills, and other preliminary evidence against the MLA has been well documented by the police bosses.
Since politically significant and accused being sitting MLA from the Opposition party, the case has been transferred to the ACB. DGP Malakondaiah has written a letter to ACB DG Thakur to probe the matter efficiently. With this, cases have been filed against Kotamreddy under ACB act. It is speculated that Kotamreddy has direct links with cricket bookies and Kotamreddy allegedly backed them.
The police also said that Krishna Singh had given the MLA Rs 23 lakh at the Kadapa R and B Guesthouse. AP Police said Kotamreddy helped Krishna Singh to hide in his residence and even helped him later to surrender in court later.
Earlier cops have booked a case under Sec 3 of AP Gaming Act, Sec 109, Sec 173 and 174 of the IPC as they have concrete evidence on the involvement of the MLA in cricket betting activity. Now, ACB registered cases against Kotamreddy. This is seen as a major embarrassment to Jagan and YSRCP.
