The Hyderabad High Court on Thursday granted bail to mining baron and former minister of Karnataka Gali Janardhan Reddy in the “Cash for Bail Scam” case.
However, he will be cooling his heels in the jail as hearing in the Obulapuram Mining Scam case is pending in the Supreme Court.
Gali Janardhan Reddy has been in jail for three years now since he was picked up by CBI on charges of illegal mining, managed to secure a bail in another case of "Cash for bail".
Although he was expecting bail in OMC case as CBI offered him conditional bail with seven conditions, the counsel of Gali apparently objected one of the conditions.
Asking the CBI to reconsider its conditions, the Supreme Court has put off the hearing of Gali's bail application to next month.
With this Gali has to stay in the jail for another one month.
