The CBI Special Court on Thursday extended the judicial custody of former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy, his brother-in-law and Obulapuram Mining Corporation managing director B V Srinivasa Reddy and former mines director V D Rajagopal to January 25 in the Obulapuram Mining Corporation’s illegal mining scam.

The court issued these orders when they were produced before the Nampally court after the expiry of their remand on Thursday. Following the court directions, the police have again shifted them to the Chanchalguda Central Jail.

In the court, Gali Janardhan Reddy appealed to judge with folded hands not to extend his remand and sanction bail. Reddy prayed the judge “I will not leave the country and cooperate with the investigation agency in the probe. Kindly grant me bail.”

However, the Special Court extended his judicial custody to January 25. Reddy’s counsel said that he would file another bail petition on January 22.

Meanwhile, the CBI has handed over the chargesheet copies of the OMC case to Gali Janardhan Reddy.

The special court also adjourned the petition of tainted IAS officer Y Srilakshmi seeking special class prisoner status to January 25. The court also extended her remand to January 25. The court conducted the proceedings of fourth accused Srilakshmi through video conference from Chanchalguda jail.

The CBI on December 3 filed its chargesheet in the OMC case against Gali, his brother-in-law and OMC Managing Director B V Srinivas Reddy, V D Rajagopal, former Assistant Director of Mines and Geology late R Linga Reddy and the OMC. (INN)
