Flying surveillance teams (FST) of the Election Commission and Income Tax department raided house of a retired A K Goel, who was also adviser of TRS (now BRS) in 2014.

The raid was carried based on complaint that the house was a dump for huge cash allegedly for distribution by BRS during .

“We have information that Plot no 355/1 on Rd. No 22 is a dump for BRS money of about Rs. 200 cr. It may be the BRS party strategy that hiding the money at retired 's house for later distribution would not lead to any suspicion for others. The searches are based on the Congress party's petition to the EC,” said Telangana Congress vice president Mallu Ravi.

Officials involved in the search confirmed that no illegally stored cash was found so far.

However Congress workers alleged that search teams were trying to hush up the issue.They alleged that the cops had let off a few persons on bikes without number plates.

“When Congress workers questioned those leaving the house, cops caned them. Instead of stopping the people from leaving the premises, the police used force on our workers, injuring them,” said Ravi.
