Chandra babu Kwash filed a petition in the AP High Court seeking dismissal of the case registered against him by the CID. Supreme Court Advocate Siddharth Ludra heard arguments on behalf of Chandrababu. Arguments on Chandrababu’s petitions have been going on since this morning. The judge asked the CID to show if there was clear evidence in the matter of assigned lands. The High Court questioned the CID officials as to what was found in the preliminary inquiry. However, counsel for the CID told the court that details could not be disclosed at the outset of the trial. He said all matters would be known if a full inquiry was allowed. However, the High Court did not agree with the CID inquiry and imposed a stay in the case.
