Satyam accused remain in judicial custody

April 29, 2009 15:36 IST
The judicial remand of former Satyam chairman B Ramalinga Raju and seven other accused was extended by 14 days on Wednesday by a local court in Hyderabad.

All the accused in the multi-crore rupee fraud case were produced before the XIV Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate K Sudhakar, who extended their remand till May 13.

Earlier, B Ramalinga Raju and other accused were brought to the court at 10.30 a.m. in a police van from the Chanchalguda jail.

As per court procedure, the accused were to be present in the court to receive a copy each of the charge sheet filed by the CBI against them.

However, CBI Public Prosecutor Venkat Ramana informed the judge that copies of the charge sheet could not be brought to the court as they are kept in a make-shift office of the CBI and there were difficulties in transporting them.

He told the court that the CBI is ready to provide copies of the charge sheet at the office. This is the third time that B Ramalinga Raju has been produced before court since his arrest.
