HYDERABAD: Days before suspended IAS officer Y Srilakshmi's 90-day judicial remand comes to an end, the Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday filed a supplementary charge sheet in the Obulapuram illegal mining case, charging her with criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust and criminal misconduct.

Naming Srilakshmi as an Accused No 6, the CBI filed a 48-page supplementary charge sheet in the special CBI court and also submitted 14 sets of documents which were brought in an iron trunk.

It told the court that sanction for prosecution of Srilakshmi was awaited from a competent authority.

CBI superintendent of police H Venkatesh said Srilakshmi, the then secretary of industries and commerce, was charged under Sections 120-b (criminal conspiracy), 409 (criminal breach of trust) of IPC and Section 13 (2) read with 13 (1) (d) of Prevention of Corruption Act.

"Srilakshmi has been charge-sheeted for offences of criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust and criminal misconduct for causing wrongful gain to Obulapuram Mining Company and for grant of leases in furtherance of criminal conspiracy with other accused persons," he said.

According to sources, the CBI did not make any further allegations against Srilakshmi in the supplementary charge sheet.

Right from the initial stages of its probe, the investigating agency had been contending that Srilakshmi had removed the word, `captive mining', while granting mining lease to Karnataka former minister Gali Janardhan Reddy's Obulapuram Mining Company.

“There are no fresh allegations made in the supplementary charge sheet," the sources said.
