Bangalore: A court here on Monday rejected the bail
plea of former Karnataka minister Katta Subramanaya Naidu, an
accused in a land scam, filed on health grounds, but permitted
him to avail treatment in any hospital in the country.

Lokayukta Special Court Judge N K Sudhindra Rao declined
bail to Naidu, who has been in Judicial Custody since August
eight for his alleged involvement in Karnataka Industrial Area
Development Board land scam.

The judge, however, gave permission to Naidu the right to
procure necessary treatment for cancer in any hospital of his
choice, either private or government in Bangalore or elsewhere
in the country.

Slapping stringent conditions, the judge said the treatment
should be under guard and surveillance and even the place of
treatment in the hospital be guarded by jail officials or
police staff.

In case the presence of security personnel caused
inconvenience to private hospital management, those drafted
for security could be in plain clothes.

The judge said it is necessary to mention that humanity
demands that a person, whether an accused or not, is entitled
for medical care and attention.

Naidu, who has been suffering from lymphona cancer has
moved the court praying that he be granted bail and undergo
treatment of the ailment.

The Lokayukta court and Karnataka High Court had rejected
Naidu`s bail plea earlier.
