The Special Central Bureau of Investigation court on Monday extended the judicial remand of former Karnataka Minister Gali Janardhan Reddy and his brother-in-law and Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) Managing Director B V Srinivas Reddy in the OMC illegal mining case till October 31.
The Special CBI court located in the Criminal Courts Complex at Nampally conducted the hearing via video linkage between the court and Chanchalguda Central Jail, where the accused are lodged, due to Telangana bandh and advocates boycotting courts demanding separate statehood for Telangana region.
Earlier, the CBI court decided to hear the case through video-conferencing as the jail authorities said that the arrested duo were facing a security threat to their lives and it was not advisable to bring them to the court.
The duo were arrested by the CBI at Bellary in Karnataka on September 5 in connection with a case registered in 2009 against the OMC for carrying out alleged illegal mining in Anantapur district in Andhra Pradesh.
After their arrest, the Special CBI Court had also granted six days CBI custody for further investigation on September 13. But the court on September 30 rejected CBI’s petition seeking extension of their custody. The court had also rejected their bail petitions twice on September 13 and September 30. (INN)
