Hyderabad: Justice U Durga Prasad Rao of the High Court at Hyderabad on Monday refused to extend the bail of Mallampati Gandhi, the Labour Court judge. The petitioner is charged with income disproportionate to his known sources of income. In his petition, the petitioner sought bail on the ground that there was a marriage in the family.

The judge directed the petitioner to cite the stated circumstances before the lower court. He further directed the lower court to consider the same and pass appropriate orders. The CBI opposed the bail petition stating that it was awaiting responses from over 14 agencies on letters dealing with the investigation against the tainted judicial officer.

TJS can hold public meet but with rider

Justice Seetha Rama Murthi of the High Court directed the State police to permit the Telangana Jana Samithi to hold its scheduled public meeting on April 29 at Saroornagar stadium, Through its special pleader, the government said it would grant permission but this would be conditional.

It further stated that the stadium had a capacity of 5,000 people and prayed the court to direct the TJS to confine its participants to around that number or by an additional 1,000. Formal frisking of the participants will be done by the police; organisers should also inform the police as to how many speakers will attend the meeting and if they belong to any banned organisations to ensure that there is no law and order issue. Also, organisers should cooperate with the police during the meeting.
