Kovur by-poll: Police seized Rs 1 crore from ex-corporator

The police on Thursday seized Rs 1 crore from TDP ex-corporator Om Prakash's house. The cops were suspecting that these money was intended for distribution to the voters in the Kovur constituency.

"Some anonymous persons have informed us about the money. We immediately swung into action and seized the unaccounted money of Rs 1 crore. We will hand-over this cash to the government and the income tax department will take necessary action as per rules," said an officer.

However, Om Prakash defended keeping huge cash in his house saying that he is doing real estate business for sometime now and the Rs 1 crore is the money of a land transaction.

According to the reports, money is flowing into the Kovur constituency like never before. YSR Congress, TDP and Congress candidates have been spending Rs 15-25 crores each to win the prestigious constituency.
