The high court on Wednesday dismissed a petition of rebel YSR Congress party MP from Narasapuram parliamentary constituency K Raghurama Krishnam Raju requesting for transfer of Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s bail cancellation case from the CBI special court to another criminal court.
The Telangana high court, which admitted Raju’s petition on Tuesday, pulled up the MP for not trusting the CBI court. It observed that the reasons cited by Raju for seeking the transfer of the case to another court lacked any merit.
“There should be some strong and valid reasons for transferring any case from one court to another court. But the petitioner could not substantiate his reasons, which are purely hypothetical,” the high court observed.
