Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday
cancelled the bail of senior IAS officer Y Srilakshmi, one of
the accused in Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) case.
The special CBI court here had granted a conditional bail
to Srilakshmi, arrested on a charge of abusing the official
position to grant favours to former Karnataka minister Gali
Janardhan Reddy-owned OMC, on December 2.
The High Court today reversed the order and asked the
1988-batch officer, who was Commissioner of Health and Family
Welfare before she was suspended, to surrender before the CBI
special court before January 6.
The High Court observed that Srilakshmi had betrayed her
official duty and did not deserve the bail, which the lower
court granted wrongly.
CBI had argued that as she was an IAS officer and her
husband an IPS officer, there was a chance that evidence
would be tampered with if she was set free.
