Hyderabad: A local court on Friday dismissed an interim bail petition of mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy seeking permission to visit Bellary in Karnataka to attend to his mother's death anniversary ceremony.

In his order, the Special Court judge for CBI cases said he did not find it feasible and proper to release the petitioner (Janardhan Reddy) on bail under escort to go to Bellary.

The judge further noted that the release of the accused in the custody of jail authorities or police was a "great responsibility", considering the security involved.

"The release (of Janardhan Reddy) on bail with escort would certainly create a law and order situation at Bellary," the judge observed in his order.

Reddy, who is currently lodged in Chanchalguda jail here after being arrested by the CBI in connection with an "illegal" mining case, had filed an interim bail plea yesterday seeking permission to visit Bellary along with jail escort for two days to attend his mother's death anniversary ceremony on December 31.

However, the CBI strongly opposed Reddy's plea on apprehensions that he may flee.
