The complainant's advocate said that a response would be filed after going through the bail plea. The special court had summoned the 79-year-old leader in a private complaint filed by one Vasudeva Reddy in 2013. The Lokayaukta police had filed a B Report in the case citing lack of evidence, however, the special court had rejected the report.
