In a major setback to the Telangana government in the Moinabad farmhouse BRS MLAs’ poaching case the High Court dismissed the State government’s writ petition on Monday.

The High Court dismissed the petitions filed by the State government and BRS MLA Pilot Rohit Reddy urging it not to take over the case from the SIT set up by the TS government and hand it over to the CBI.

The High Court made it clear that it could not find any fault in the single judge’s order to hand over the case to the CBI and made it clear that it will not intervene in the single bench’s order.

The Advocate General said that the State government is thinking of approaching the SC and therefore the verdict should not be implemented in the next 15 days. But the High Court rejected the State government’s request.

It may be recalled that High Court Justice Vijayasen Reddy had given an order stating that the MLAs’ poaching case should be handed over to the CBI from the SIT and to cancel the interrogations carried out by the SIT.

The State government then approached the High Court division bench challenging the single bench order. Chief Justice Ujjal Bhuyan and Justice N. Thukaram had put off their order after a long hearing and delivered it on Monday.

The High Court division bench upheld the High Court single bench verdict and made it clear that it will not review the single bench’s order.

The BJP and the accused, Ramachandra Bharati, Nandu Kumar, Simhayaji and others, had filed petitions in the High Court stating that they have no faith in the investigation of the State government-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT).

Dealing with the petitions, the single bench directed the State government to hand over the case to the CBI and disbanded the SIT.
