Reddy was arrested by the ACB on May 31 for allegedly trying to bribe nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson to vote for TDP nominee in the Telangana Legislative Council poll. [TDP MLA trapped for offering Rs 50 lakh bribe]

Based on Stephenson's complaint, the three were held after they were caught allegedly handing over Rs 50 lakh to the former.

In a new twist to the controversy in Sunday, an audio clip of a purported conversation between Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and Stephenson was aired in some local channels. Soon after, a case was registered against Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao for alleged illegal tapping of phones of the Andhra CM.

Sources in the Andhra Pradesh government said the tapes were fabricated and warned of taking serious moves over it.
