Reddys arrest: Law taking its course, says govt

September 05, 2011 15:27 IST
With the Central Bureau of Investigation arresting mining baron and former Bharatiya Janata Party minister G Janardhan Reddy and his brother-in- law in Karnataka, the government on Monday said the law is taking its course in the case.

"You all know that the government does not interfere in the functioning of the CBI. The CBI is investigating the matter and they must be proceedings according to their investigation. You should have faith in them," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Shukla said.

Shukla said as far as Bellary's Reddy brothers are concerned, "the law is taking its own course".

Janardhan Reddy and managing director of Obalapuram Mining Company B V Srinivas Reddy were arrested by the CBI after searches at their premises allegedly led to seizure of over 30 kg of gold and more than Rs 4.5 crore in cash.
