Hyderabad: Petition of IT Grids owner dismissed

While recording the statements, the court dismissed the petition.

Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court dismissed the habeas corpus petitions of four employees of IT Grids, which is facing allegations of data breach of Andhra Pradesh state voters’ list and beneficiaries of government schemes.

A division bench comprising Justice Raghavendra Singh Chauhan and Justice Shameem Akthar was dealing with the petition filed by IT Grids founder D. Ashok on Sunday as an urgent matter, stating that four of the company’s employees — Bhaskar, Phani, Chandra Sekhar and Vikram Goud — had been taken into custody by the police.

The court observed that the IT employees were not in illegal detention, and the employees had stated before the court that they were not taken into custody.
The employees had submitted that they were not detained and a lack of communication with their relatives had caused the petition. While recording the statements, the court dismissed the petition.

On behalf of Telangana police, state Advocate General B.S. Prasad submitted that the four employees were only witnesses to enquire in the complaint lodged against data breach. He told the court that police had issued notices to the four employees to appear before them to inquire into the matter.

The employees were present before the court with the earlier orders of the bench, which had directed Telangana police on Sunday to present the four employees within 24 hours before it.
