The special court for CBI cases on Friday posted its orders to September 26 on the bail petition of BV Sreenivasa Reddy of the Obulapuram Mining Company, an accused in the illegal mining case.

Reddy’s counsel said the petitioner’s previous bail plea had been dismissed on the ground that further investigation with respect to another accused, suspended IAS officer Y Srilakshmi, was in progress.

The petitioner waited for  a long time for the probe to complete before filing the second bail application, he said.

Opposing the plea, CBI counsel said custodial interrogation of Mehfuz Ali Khan, the personal assistant of mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy, was yet to conclude.

Khan, also very close to Sreenivasa Reddy,  would be brought on  a prisoner transit warrant from Bangalore, he said.

Sreenivasa Reddy was arrested more than a year ago on September 5, 2011 and has been lodged in prison since then.
