Ex-Karnataka minister Janardhan Reddy’s daughter discharged from hosptial after delivery


The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday informed the Supreme Court that the daughter of ex-Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy’s daughter was discharged from a hospital in Bengaluru after the delivery of her child and reached Bellary last night.
The CBI made these arguments before the Supreme Court in response to a petition filed by former Karnataka Minister and mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy, who is accused of multi-million dollar illegal mining. Reddy filed a plea seeking to visit Bellary on the grounds of seeing his daughter and her newborn child.
CBI also apprised the court that Reddy’s daughter was discharged from Banglore’s hospital yesterday evening after the matter was argued before the Supreme Court yesterday.
CBI also apprised a bench of justices MR Shah and Krishna Murari that Reddy’s daughter delivered the child on September 27 after undergoing a cesarean surgery.
Senior Advocate Meenakshi Arora for Reddy submitted that the mother of the child lives in Bellary.
During the hearing, the court asked the petitioner’s counsel not to raise the voice, as it would be of no help.
The court also noted that the petitioner never disclosed that the child was not born in Bellary, however, it expressed full sympathy with the petitioner.
The court pointed out that what the agency is saying is that the discharge took place only after arguments before this court.
Reddy’s counsel said that a newborn may have been born in Bangalore, but the mother and child reside in Bellary. Reddy’s counsel urged the court to issue directions to the concerned court to examine the prosecution witnesses from Bellary first. The lawyer apprehended that, out of vendetta, witnesses from Bellary might be put on the stand to be examined at the end.
The court said that it would pass an appropriate order later. The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the CBI to report it tomorrow after enquiring into the plea of former Karnataka minister and mining baron, Gali Janardhan Reddy, accused in a multi-million illegal mining case, seeking to visit Bellary on the grounds of seeing his daughter and her newborn child.
