The recent exposure of an extra marital affair between Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) and Kalwakurthy Circle Inspector (CI) Mallikarjun, has been linked to the infamous 'cash-for-vote' case involving then Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader, Revanth Reddy. The two police officials dealt with the case. Sunitha Reddy was then Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). She was promoted as ASP after the case. But she developed an affair with her junior, CI Mallikarjun, who had been teamed up with her.
