Janardhana Reddy's Judicial Custody Extended

Hyderabad, Oct 3 (IANS): Former Karnataka minister G. Janardhana Reddy and his brother-in-law B.V. Srinivasa Reddy, arrested in the illegal mining case, will have to remain behind bars as a special court Monday extended their judicial custody till Oct 17.

The special court for Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) cases passed the order after the investigating agency filed a memo seeking extension of their judicial custody, which was ending Monday.

The judge conducted the hearing via video linkage between the court and Chanchalguda Central Jail, where the accused are lodged. CBI officials said the accused were not brought to the Nampally Criminal Court complex due to security reasons.

The court had Sep 30 once again dismissed bail petitions of the mining baron and his brother-in-law. The same day, the court refused to remand the accused into further custody of the CBI.

The federal agency had arrested the duo from Bellary in Karnataka Sep 5 in connection with illegal mining in Andhra Pradesh's Anantapur district.

They were brought to Hyderabad the same day and the court sent them to judicial custody till Sep 19. The judge Sep 13 rejected bail pleas of the accused and remanded them to CBI custody for six days.

The court later extended the judicial custody of the accused till Oct 3.
