Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court on Monday refused to grant bail to M. Gandhi, a former judge of Labour Court 1 in Nampally, in connection with a disproportionate assets case.
While dismissing Mr Gandhi’s bail application, Justice U. Durga Prasad Rao directed the Special ACB Court to consider the petitioner’s request to be allowed to attend the wedding of one of his relatives from May 4 to May 9.
The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Telangana filed the disproportionate assets case against Mr Gandhi on March 16, with the permission of the Chief Justice of the Hyderabad High Court, and arrested him on March 17.
Mr Gandhi filed a petition requesting bail on the grounds that the investigation had been completed, he was suffering from health problems, and he had to attend a family wedding.
Ravi Kiran Rao, senior counsel appearing for the ACB, submitted that the case was still under investigation. He said that the ACB had written letters to various institutions seeking details regarding the financial transactions of the accused, and they were yet to receive those details.
