Following TRS’s allegations that BJP tried to poach some of its MLAs, the saffron party filed a writ petition in the High Court seeking the CBI probe.

Based on a complaint by Pilot Rohith Reddy, one of the legislators, cases under relevant sections – criminal conspiracy, offering bribe and Prevention of Corruption Act,1988 – were filed against the trio – Ramachandra Bharati@ Satish Sharma, Nanda Kumar and Simhayaji Swamy on the night of October 26.
