A special court trying Satyam scam cases on Wednesday issued a reminder to NIMS to submit a report before it by June 14 on the health condition of former Satyam Computer chairman B. Ramalinga Raju.
Raju, the prime accused in multi-crore financial fraud in Satyam Computers, is undergoing treatment for Hepatitis C at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS). He has not been attending the court proceedings since September last year citing health reasons.
Earlier, Magistrate B.V.L.N. Chakravarti had directed NIMS Hospital to file a fresh medical report on the health condition of Raju by June 7. The last report on his health was submitted on April 17.
However, no report was filed by NIMS before the court either on June 7 or Wednesday. The judge then issued a reminder to NIMS director to submit a report forthwith by June 14 without fail.
The court wants to examine all the accused, including Raju, with regard to the allegations mentioned against them by the CBI in two separate charge sheets before commencing the trial.
With Raju not appearing before the court, the premier investigating agency had last month sought court’s permission to establish video link with NIMS, to expedite the case.
