HYDERABAD: A Division Bench of the A.P. High Court comprising Justice T. Meenakumari and Justice P.V. Sanjay Kumar on Friday remanded the matter pertaining to lease of mines in favour of Obulapuram Mining Corporation (OMC) back to the single judge for comprehensive adjudication. The Bench was dealing with a writ appeal filed by OMC.

Tappala Shyam Prasad filed the writ petition complaining that the application by his family was much prior to the application of the OMC. He said that OMC was favoured by the government and the GO issued accordingly.

The single judge allowed the writ petition setting aside the GO issued in favour of OMC.
