He was being examined by a team of ACB officials. Meanwhile, ACB officials pasted the notice outside the house of TDP MLA from Sathupally of Khammam, Sandra Venkata Veeraiah, at Hyderguda MLA Quarters seeking his appearance before them in the case. Mr. Veeraiah was not available at his Quarter when ACB officials went to serve him the notice.

Earlier in the day, Telangana DGP Anurag Sharma and ACB Director General A. K. Khan met the Chief Minister and briefed him about the developments in the wake of fresh notices to the TDP leaders.
The TRS Minister T. Harish Rao ridiculed the AP Ministers for their knee-jerk reaction that their Government would not hesitate to arrest Telangana Chief Minister and others.
He wondered why the AP Government was filing a series of cases against the TS Chief Minister and others. “We are not perturbed or afraid of such actions,” he told reporters here.
