Hyderabad: In a sensational catch just days before the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections, Cyberabad police have apprehended two persons claiming to be employees of Jayabheri Properties linked to TDP MP M Murali Mohan near Hi-Tec City railway station and seized Rs 2 core cash from their possession.
According to police, the two men confessed that they were taking the cash to Rajahmundry to hand it over to the TDP Rajahmundry Lok Sabha candidate, but when TOI contacted the MP, he said he has got nothing to do with the money.
