Hyderabad, Mar 21 : Suspended IAS officer Y Srilakshmi, accused in the illegal Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) case involving former Karnataka Minister Gali Janardhan Reddy, surrendered before the CBI special court here today after the expiry of interim bail.
Srilakshmi, who was granted interim bail in October last year, appeared before the court in a wheel chair as per court orders issued on March 18.
She was later shifted to Chanchalguda Central prison. The court asked the prison authorities to take her to Osmania General Hospital for check-up and produce her medical reports on March 25.
The court will pronounce its orders after it receives the medical reports.
Srilakshmi sought extension of the interim bail till completion of investigation into the case.
She informed the court that she was undergoing treatment at the CMC hospital at Vellore in Tamil nadu to regain sensation in her left lower limb. The CBI, however opposed her plea.
The court also granted her permission to use wheel chair in the jail.
The central government last week granted sanction to the investigating agency to prosecute Srilakshmi under Prevention of Corruption Act in OMC case.
Srilakshmi, a 1998 batch IAS officer, was the Commissioner of health and Family welfare when she was arrested on November 18, 2011 by the CBi in illegal mining case.
