HYDERABAD: The Central Bureau of Investigation has suggested that Koneru Prasad, the key accused in the Emaar scam, get himself admitted to the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences to get proper treatment for his ailment.
B Ravindranth, deputy legal advisor, CBI, on Monday filed a counter petition in the Special CBI court on Koneru Prasad’s petition seeking better medical facilities and his shifting to a super-speciality hospital from the jail.
Magistrate B Naga Maruthi Sharma has reserved the order for Tuesday.
The CBI said Prasad could be moved to NIMS.
“The NIMS has latest equipment to treat patients.
Koneru Prasad needs only medical assistance from neurosurgeon and MRI scan for his ailment.
We suggest him to get such medical facilities from the NIMS, Ravindranath said.
Prasad, currently lodged in the Chanchalguda Central Prison, stated in his petition that he has been suffering from severe back pain and the prison authorities could not provide him proper medical facilities.
Based on the medical certificate issued by doctors of Chanchalguda prison, he wanted to be shifted to a super-speciality hospital.
