YS Viveka murder case transferred to another state!
A significant judgement about the trial in the murder case of YS Vivekananda Reddy, former minister and younger brother of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, has been made by the Supreme Court. The trial in the case may now be moved to another state, according to the supreme court. On Friday, the relevant order will be made.
According to the petition, the trial in the case is not proceeding well in AP, the witnesses are being intimidated, and personal lawsuits are being brought against the investigators. The Supreme Court has received a petition from Viveka's daughter requesting for the CBI investigation to be moved to another state. Almost three hours were spent hearing the plea from a three-judge panel presided over by Justice M R Shah.
The CBI, however, has submitted a more than 200-page affidavit to the Supreme Court claiming that it does not oppose to the case being transferred to another state. The CBI also provided the court with compelling arguments for why the trial had to be moved to a different state. The Supreme Court heard the arguments presented by the lawyers for both sides. It consented to move it from AP to a different state.
Given that the matter was only briefly discussed in court, it remains to be seen whether the case would be relocated to Hyderabad, Karnataka, or Delhi. On Friday, information regarding this aspect will be revealed.
