Prohibitory orders ahead of mining baron Reddy’s release

Prohibitory orders were promulgated on Thursday in about half-a-km radius around the Parappana Agrahara prison here ahead of former minister and mining baron G Janardhan Reddy’s release from jail. The Supreme Court on Tuesday had granted bail to Reddy, who is an accused in the illegal mining case involving his Obulapuram Mining Company.

Reddy, facing several criminal cases, was arrested in 2011. Anticipating his release, a large number of his supporters are expected to gather near Parappana Agrahara prison on January 22 and 23 for celebrations, and this may disturb peace and normalcy in the area, and may cause damage to property and traffic congestion in the locality, City Police Chief M N Reddi said.
