Hyderabad: A city court today permitted former chairman of Satyam Computers B Ramalinga Raju, to file a detailed counter, after the CBI had alleged that Raju had violated court orders and met several people at NIMS here where he is presently undergoing treatment.

The premier investigating agency had last week alleged that about 234 persons met Raju between December 12, 2009 and March 27, 2010 at the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), where he is undergoing treatment for Hepatitis-C.

A court in its order on December 5 last year specified that Raju, the prime accused in the multi-crore financial fraud in Satyam Computers, should not be allowed to meet others except either his wife or son to attend him in the hospital. Raju should not be allowed to influence any person with regard to the case, the court order had stated.

However, the CBI had alleged that several 'rich and mighty' of society were coming and interacting with Raju in the hospital where he is under judicial custody.

Strongly objecting to the CBI allegations, Raju's counsels today asserted that only 12 advocates were meeting him in the hospital as he faced over 40 cases around the world.

Following CBI's petition on the issue, the superintendent of Chanchalguda Central Prison had asked each counsel to take permission prior to meeting Raju, the defence counsels said.
