Telangana Revokes a Key CBI Privilege Amid an MLA Poaching Scandal

Telangana: The Telangana administration yesterday notified the high court that it has revoked the general authorization provided to the CBI to investigate cases in the state, days after accusing the BJP of an unsuccessful poaching attempt.
This occurs just days after Gujjula Premendar Reddy, the state general secretary of the BJP, asked the Telangana High Court to order a CBI investigation into claims that some men connected to his party attempted to snatch TRS MLAs for themselves.

He argued in court that KCR’s party was involved in a plot to discredit the BJP and demanded that the case be investigated by a “neutral agency,” such as the CBI or a Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the court.
