HYDERABAD: The state government and real estate company DLF on Thursday approached the AP high court seeking cancellation of bail granted to realtor G S Gupta and two of his family members.
DLF company was allegedly duped to an extent of Rs 280 crore by G S Gupta following which criminal proceedings were launched against him. While evading the police, Gupta had moved the Supreme Court for anticipatory bail and the apex court had stayed the proceedings against him for three weeks. In the meantime, Gupta moved the trial court last month and secured bail. This bail was on Thursday challenged by the state and DLF.
Public prosecutor Vinod Kumar Deshpande contended that Gupta and his associates should have first offered themselves to the process of trial court before seeking bail. In the absence of such surrender, granting them bail is illegal, the prosecutor said.
Justice Samudrala Govindarajulu, before whom the matter came up, posted the case for hearing to Monday.
