The MLA was present before the CBI court through video-conferencing on Tuesday. The counsel for Sail moved an application seeking more time since the condition of the MLA’s father was critical.

On October 11, the CBI court had allowed Sail to visit his father in Karwar and directed him to be present before the court on October 15. Special court judge V Shreeshananda allowed Sail to visit his father till October 24.

Sail was arrested on September 20 by the CBI for his alleged role in the illegal export of iron ore from Belekeri Port during 2009-10. Mallikarjuna Shipping Company, owned by Sail, had exported about nine lakh tons of iron ore from the port in 2009-10, of which the CBI alleged that nearly 6.5 lakh tonne was sourced illegally.
