The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Tuesday granted bail to suspended judicial officers T. Pattabhirama Rao and K. Lakshmi Narasimha Rao, and Bellary Urban MLA G. Somasekhar Reddy in the cash-for-bail scam case involving the former Karnataka Minister Gali Janardhan Reddy.

Justice Govinda Rajulu directed them to produce two sureties for Rs.1 lakh each and deposit their passports in the ACB Court. The judge took into consideration the fact that the investigation was over and the final charge-sheet was filed.

Meanwhile, Mr. Janardhan Reddy was produced in a Special Court for ACB Cases here on a prisoner’s transit (PT) warrant. Mr. Reddy was then shifted back to Chanchalguda as he was to be produced in the CBI Court through videoconferencing in an illegal mining case.
