HYDERABAD: A Division Bench of the High Court comprising Chief Justice A.R.Dave and Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy on Wednesday made it clear that TRS president KCR, now on a fast, could engage the services of a lawyer of his choice.

It was dealing with petition filed by Telangana Lawyers Association which contended that the State was acting in a highhanded manner and had detained him illegally.

The Bench said illegal detention could be challenged by the detenu, but in a public interest petition this challenge could not be permitted.
