CBI wants Yeddy in custody
In a major set back to former Chief Minister of Karnataka, B S Yeddyurappa, the Central Bureau of Investigation has said that it would need him in their custody for interrogation. Filing very strong objections to the anticipatory bail plea filed by Yeddyurappa, the CBI made it clear if the case has to be solved then it would need all the accused in its custody for questioning.
It is necessary to take him into custody and interrogate him, the CBI said. The bail plea was filed after the CBI took over the probe into the illegal mining scam following a Supreme Court directive.
We need to complete the probe in three months as per the guidelines of the Suprme Court and we need to put out a perfect case. We cannot afford to have any road blocks and only if we take the accused into custody can we probe properly.
Yeddyurappa is the one person who can provide us with vital clues. He has been the Chief Minister of the state and hence he would have a lot of information on him which we need to find out.
We also would need more documents and this could be provided by Yeddyurappa and the other accused in the case. If these persons are granted anticipatory bail then it would become difficult for the investigation to progress smoothly and would also hamper the probe badly, the CBI also stated in its objections.
Yeddyurappa who is being probed by the CBI moved the court seeking anticipatory bail as he feared that he may be arrested. The matter will be heard next on May 29th.
