Asking the Advocate General (AG) to explain why the BRS government had appealed even after the Single Bench dismissed the BJP’s petition, the HC’s Division Bench on Friday said that the BRS and the BJP must not make the HC a platform for their political battles.

Responding to the AG’s argument that the CBI has been pressuring the government for files of the BRS MLAs poaching case, the High Court adjourned the case to Monday and asked the CBI not to force the government till Monday to give details.

The AG informed the court that their counsel Dushyanth Dave is in New Delhi and urged it to allow time till Monday. The AG requested the court to hear the case online as Dushyanth Dave will be in New Delhi on Monday too.

Accepting the AG’s request, the High Court said that it will take up the case virtually on Monday at 2.30 pm.

The Deputy Solicitor General informed the court on behalf of the CBI that the CBI had sent a letter to the TS Chief Secretary seeking details of the MLAs’ case.

He informed the court that the CBI is ready to investigate the case immediately after receiving documents of the case.

In fact, the counsels of both sides argued in length regarding the petition filed by the Telangana government challenging the HC Single Bench verdict transferring the MLAs’ poaching case to the CBI from the SIT. The Chief Justice Ujjal Bhuyan-led Division Bench heard the case on Friday too.

Former Advocate General Sitarama Murthy and senior lawyer L. Ravichandra argued on behalf of the three accused, Ramachandra Bharati, Nandu Kumar and Simhayaji. They reiterated that the government’s petition is not fit for trial.

The TS government has to approach the Supreme Court if it has any objections to the Single Bench verdict as it is a criminal case and as the HC Division Bench cannot hear the case.
