YSR Congress Lok Sabha Member moves before Special Judge CBI for cancellation of Bail to the Andhra Pradesh CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy
In an unprecedented move, YSR Congress Lok Sabha Member Kanumuru Raghu Ramakrishna Raju, has moved a petition before Special Judge CBI, Hyderabad for cancellation of Bail to the State CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy, stating, “I am unable to digest the atrocities of the Respondent No. 2 and Accused No. 2 against the People of Andhra Pradesh, as the atrocities, corruption, barbarity of the respondents is nothing but fascist and despot.”
“I submit that the Respondent No. 2 and Accused No. 2 systematically crushing the voice of people of Andhra Pradesh by undermining democratic institutions and the election of Respondent No. 2 resulted in unimaginable levels of violence and horrible pain to the people of Andhra Pradesh and after Respondent No. 2 came into power there is voluminous increase in hate crimes and his over-reaching control of media outlets by brazenly bringing TV Media and a Section of printing media under his fold, which is a very danger to democracy and the people of the state”, the plea states
It is further averred by the petitioner that, YS Jaganmohan Reddy has been abusing his official position by giving important Political posts to his co-accused in order to “gang up and tamper the evidences”
Reference is made to the Supreme Court observation in State of Uttar Pradesh v. Amaramani Tripaty, to emphasize on the prayer sought.
Furthermore, submissions are made stating that, “Respondent No. 2 and Accused No. 2 are indulging in atrocious ways and means to stifle the voice and independence of judiciary by making false, baseless, twisted, concocted, fabricated, allegations and averments against the judiciary and the judges of the Supreme Court & High Courts and their family members…”
Moreover reliance is placed on;
- Anil Kumar v. State of UP where the High Court cancelled the bail on the ground that the accused had position and standing to put obstruction in the trial, causing fear of tampering of evidences and terrorizing witnesses.
- State of Vs. E. Veeramani, 1995 CRLJ 184 where it was said that an accused found misusing liberty under a bail order and acting against the collective interest of community is a relevant factor to be taken into consideration while considering the Cancellation of Bail.
- State Vs. Late Sanjay Gandhi, AIR 1978 SC 961, it was held that it need not be proved that the accused won over the witnesses by a mathematical certainty or proof beyond reasonable doubt; what is all necessary is Test of Balance of Probabilities but the case on hand is having over whelming evidence that the respondent No. 2 and Accused No. 2 are directly and indirectly tampering with the evidence.
It would not be out of place to note that in a recent development Supreme Court closed the enquiry pursuant to the letter written by YS Jaganmohan Reddy accusing the upcoming CJI on charges of corruption in the Amravati Land Scam case [Read here]
