TRS MLAs poaching case: Bail denied to 3 accused; BJP seeks stay on investigation

Hyderabad: There has been a crucial development in the TRS MLAs poaching case. The ACB court in Nampally, Hyderabad has rejected the bail petition of the accused. The public prosecutor, on behalf of the police, brought to the attention of the court that if bail is granted then the investigation will be hindered.

The ACB special court, consenting to the submission of the PP, then dismissed the bail petition.

Nandakumar, Simhayaji, and Ramachandra Bharati, who are accused in the MLAs poaching case, are currently remanded in Chanchalguda jail.

Meanwhile, on Monday, the Telangana High Court Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Ujjal Bhuyan and Justice C.V Bhaskar Reddy agreed to hear the writ appeal filed by BJP Telangana seeking a stay on the investigation of the TRS MLAs poaching case.

Chinnolla Naresh Reddy, counsel for BJP Telangana, requested the Chief Justice Division Bench to hear the matter urgently as the investigation is not going in a fair manner.

Advocate general Banda Shivananda Prasad requested the Bench to hear the matter either on Wednesday or Thursday, stating that a senior counsel (from the Supreme Court) will argue the case for the state and all documents are to be furnished to him.

Counsel for the petitioner, Mr. Naresh Reddy, said serious allegations are made against petitioner and the investigation is not going in a fair and proper manner. It is an issue that can have national ramifications, he said, and requested the court to hear the matter as early as possible.

Consenting to the request of the petitioner counsel, the CJ Bench agreed to hear it on Tuesday and directed the advocate general to make submissions on 15 November.
