Gali Somasekhar Reddy, brother of mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy, filed a petition in the ACB court on Wednesday, seeking special- class prison facilities considering his ‘social status’.

According to a source, Somasekhar Reddy appealed to the court to provide him special facilities in the prison considering that he is an MLA, high income tax payer and had a high standard of living.

The judge posted the hearing on the petition to August 14.
