Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday reserved the orders on the petitions seeking Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe by SIT into former minister Y S Vivekananda Reddy murder case. The police have submitted postmortem report and general case diary to the high court.
The counsel for Vivekananda Reddy's daughter had raised objection over filing memo to withdraw the petition filed by the then leader of opposition Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy. The counsel for Jagan Mohan Reddy has placed his arguments before the court regarding the withdrawal of the petition.
The Advocate General has stated that Jagan Mohan Reddy has demanded a CBI inquiry then itself and also reminded that he ( Jagan Mohan Reddy) has expressed doubts on the TDP Government, as it may dilute the case. However counsel for the petitioners have clarified that they never told that they don't have confidence over the Government. "Our intention is to convey that the probe is not being carried out properly, " they said. The counsel for petitioner had questioned as to why Sakshi daily has carried a statement by the Chief Minister that another case would be handed over to CBI. He also asked as to why the Chief Minister was saying no to hand over Vivekananda Reddy's murder case to CBI. The AG has raised objection over bringing the names of party or media organisations, in between. The High court has reserved the arguments, after hearing the arguments of both the parties.
