Reddy's custody extended till May 10

A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Friday extended the judicial custody of former minister G Janardhana Reddy and his personal assistant Mehfuz Ali Khan till May 10.

 Lodged in the Central Prisons at Parappana Agrahara, Reddy and Ali were produced in the court via video-conferencing.

The CBI has been investigating into the illegal mining charges against Associated Mining Corporation (AMC) and the Deccan Mining Syndicate (DMC) owned by Reddy and his wife Aruna Lakshmi. Last month, the High Court dismissed a petition filed by Reddy challenging extension of CBI custody in connection with illegal mining activity of the AMC, owned by him and his wife.The Court upheld the designated CBI court extending custody of Reddy, who had been arrested in connection with illegal mining.  “There was nothing wrong with the CBI court extending Reddy's custody till March 16 in connection with probe into illegal mining,” the judge had observed in his ruling during the course of dismissing Reddy’s plea.
