Special court extends custody of Katta, son

Katta Subramanya Naidu

The three accused were not present in the court as Katta senior was admitted to the hospital and the other two were not brought to the Court by the prison police.

In a submission to the court, the prison officials expressed their inability to bring the high profile accused to the court for the hearing as they did not have the requisite number of staff. Judge N K Sudhindra then directed the Lokayukta police to produce them in special court for future hearings.

United Telecom Company Chairman Basavapoornaiah, retired KAS officer T P Muninarayanappa, BBMP member M Gopi and Bandikodigehalli Gram Panchayat member B K Manju, who had been granted bail earlier, were present at the hearing.

Fresh non-bailable warrants were issued against Venkaiah and Jaggaiah of Indu Developers, who are absconding.

Meanwhile, the High Court will pronounce the orders on the bail plea of all the three on Tuesday.  Justice V Jagannathan postponed the proceedings to Tuesday, due to paucity of time.
