The CBI court on Monday granted interim bail  up to October 31 to former excise minister Mopidevi Venkataramna Rao, who was arrested by the CBI for irregularities in the allotment of land to Vanpic project.

He was asked to furnish two bonds of `1 lakh each and two personal sureties. During the interim bail period, he will not leave Hyderabad without the permission of the court.

Mopidevi, who is under judicial custody in Chanchalguda jail since his arrest, had earlier filed a petition in the CBI court  seeking interim bail on medical grounds. In the petition, he mentioned that he was suffering from severe back pain.

Principal special judge of the CBI court U Durga Prasad Rao, while dealing with the bail petition, said the petitioner will utilise the interim bail period for medical treatment and would not leave Hyderabad without the court’s permission. He cautioned the petitioner against any attempts at influencing the investigation. He further said that the petitioner would not try to coerce witnesses in the case nor would attempt tampering with evidence. The court directed Venkataramana to surrender before it on November 1, 2013.

Earlier, on December 18, 2012, the special CBI court has granted conditional interim bail to Mopidevi to visit Sabarimala and other religious places from December 24, 2012 to January 2, 2013.
