Hyderabad: A special CBI court here, Tuesday, rejected the bail petitions of former Karnataka minister and mining baron Janardhan Reddy and
his brother-in-law B V Srinivas Reddy arrested on charges of
illegal mining.

Janardhan Reddy and Srinivasa Reddy, MD of Oblapuram
Mining Corporation (OMC), were arrested by CBI on September 5
at Bellery in Karnataka in an alleged illegal mining
scam and remanded in judicial custody till September 19.

However, the court today remanded them to CBI custody till September 19.

They are currently lodged at the Chanchalguda central
jail here.

Appearing on behalf of CBI Additional Solicitor General,
Vivek Tanaka opposed the bail pleas of the accused and urged
the court to grant CBI their custody to get information about
illegal mining activities.

He argued that custodial interrogation of both accused
was necessary and crucial to get information about the illegal
mining activities as both had personal knowledge about them.

Earlier, defence counsel C V Nagesh, a Karnataka High
Court lawyer, and Raghavachari contended in the court that
their clients have a good reputation in society and there was
hidden agenda to go against them.

Appealing to the court to grant bail to the duo, they
said their clients would cooperate with the investigating
agency in its probe.
