Hyderabad: CBI on Friday filed a supplementary
chargesheet in the illegal mining case involving Obulapuram
Mining Company of former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan
Reddy, naming suspended IAS officer Yerra Srilakshmi as a

Srilakshmi has been charged with criminal conspiracy,
criminal breach of trust and causing wrongful gain (to OMC)
under the Indian Penal Code, as well as with offences under
Prevention of Corruption Act.

The agency, however, also informed the court that
Centre`s sanction to prosecute Srilakshmi was still awaited,
though necessary material had been sent to Delhi.

CBI officials submitted documents (14 files containing
several pages) to the court in support of charges against
Srilakshmi, who, it said, had conspired with Gali Janardhan
Reddy and other accused.

The 1988-batch officer, who was Commissioner of Health
and Family Welfare when she was arrested on November 28 last
year by the CBI, allegedly abused her earlier official
position as the secretary (Industries and Commerce) to favour
OMC in allotment of mining leases. She is in judicial custody
in Chanchalguda Prison here.

The CBI, in December, had filed the first chargesheet in
the case which named Janardhan Reddy, his brother-in-law B V
Srinivas Reddy (the Managing Director of OMC), former Director
of Mines and Geology Dept V D Rajagopal and late R Lingareddy,
the then Assistant Director (Mines and Geology) in Anantapur
district, besides OMC itself.

However, Srilakshmi`s name had not figured, as the CBI
was seeking sanction for prosecution.
