HYDERABAD: Special CBI court judge A Pullaiah on Wednesday  reserved his orders to April 26 on the bail petition of suspended IAS officer BP Acharya, who is an accused in the APIIC-Emaar Properties scam.

Earlier, countering CBI’s blame on the state government for the delay in permission to prosecute Acharya, his counsel Surender told the court that the agency had failed to submit its report on the case to the state government..

The CBI was deliberately delaying and prolonging the investigation, he said.

“When the agency submitted a comprehensive report in connection with the case to the central government, it was asked whether it had submitted its report to the state government. Acharya told the CBI whatever he knew and there was nothing more left to say, and yet the agency is opposing his bail plea on the ground that further interrogation is needed,’’ the counsel said and reminded the court that Acharya was a senior IAS officer and he served as principal secretary (home).

“The CBI is deliberately alleging that Acharya will influence the witnesses and may tamper with the evidence if he is granted bail. Acharya will not do such things which are imaginary. He will comply with all the conditions of the court and the court may consider granting him bail,’’ his counsel pleaded.
