Mining baron Gali Janardhana Reddy was granted bail by the Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Sandur on Friday in the case of destruction of boundary marks in the Karnataka- Andhra Pradesh border and issuing a life threat to Tumati mine owner late Tapal Narayana Reddy.
Reddy’s counsel on Friday filed a petition before JMFC Sandur requesting him to commence the trial immediately as the case has been pending since 2006.
The counsel appealed to keep Reddy at Bellary central prison because it will be inconvenient for him to travel each time from Parappana Agrahara prison in Bangalore.
Based on the petition, JMFC ordered the matter to be heard on November 28 and bail was granted based on a self-bond worth `50,000.
Meanwhile, objection was raised by the public prosecutor.
JMFC Sandur has given time to submit the objection on September 20.
While walking out of the premises amid tight security, Reddy told his supporters to hope for the best.
Anger prevailed in the Reddy camp on Friday when police prevented Bellary MP J Shanta, Raichur MP Sanna Phakirappa, MLC Mrutunjaya Jinaga, ZP president Aruna Tippa Reddy, a few corporators and others from entering the Judicial Magistrate First Court to meet Janardhana Reddy.
When Reddy was brought to the Sandur JMFC from Bellary Central Jail at around 10.
45 am, his supporters came to meet him.
When the police prevented them from entering the Court, there was a heated exchange of words.
Finally Shanta and Phakirappa were allowed inside the court to meet Reddy.
Section 144 of the CrPC was imposed in and around Sandur JMFC premises
