The CBI will produce the Kadaba MP in the Principal Special CBI court tomorrow as his 14-day remand, granted on May 28 a day after his arrest, would end.
The Court also issued two prisoner warrants against him Reddy and directed the Chanchaluda jail authorities where he was lodged to take necessary steps to produce him in the court, after it took cognisance of the second and the third charge sheets filed by the CBI in the illegal assets case. (UNI)
