Father of Kadapa MP Appeals for Bail in Vivekananda Reddy Murder Case Amidst Controversy

The petition was filed before the special court for Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) cases, and Bhaskar Reddy’s legal team emphasized his health condition as a primary reason for seeking bail. The court is set to hear his bail petition on Friday.

Bhaskar Reddy was arrested by the CBI authorities on April 16 from his residence in Pulivendula, Kadapa town, and has been in judicial remand at Chanchalguda jail. On May 26, he experienced a sudden drop in blood pressure and was immediately taken to Osmania General Hospital for examination. Later, he was transferred to the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) for specialized treatment of his heart ailments. Currently, he is undergoing medical care at NIMS.

During the arrest, the CBI presented arguments to the court, stating that Bhaskar Reddy had been attempting to influence key witnesses in the Vivekananda Reddy murder case and was involved in misleading the investigation. The Central agency further alleged that Bhaskar Reddy, along with his son Avinash Reddy, played a significant role in conspiring to commit the murder of Vivekananda Reddy. Additionally, they accused the MP’s father of tampering with evidence after the crime took place.

In response to the Telangana High Court granting anticipatory bail to Avinash Reddy, the CBI is reportedly considering moving the Supreme Court to challenge the order. The high court criticized the CBI for not presenting sufficient evidence to establish Avinash Reddy’s interference in the investigation, involvement in evidence tampering, and threatening of witnesses, apart from the allegation of attempting to destroy the scene of the offense.

The judge presiding over the case stated, “The gravity of accusation against the MP has not yet been clearly brought on record by the CBI so far. No direct evidence is available against him to prove his participation in the larger conspiracy.”
