Adjournment of Bail Plea in A.P. CM Stone Pelting Case

The Vijayawada metropolitan sessions court has adjourned the bail plea of Vemula Satish, the prime accused in the stone-pelting incident targeting Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, to May 27. Satish, alleged to have previous criminal records, reportedly orchestrated the attack with assurances of financial support and protection from co-accused individuals. The prosecution countered Satish’s plea, citing strong evidence of his involvement and the ongoing investigation’s critical stage.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police highlighted the severity of the offense, arguing against bail on grounds of potential witness intimidation and obstruction of justice. Satish’s defense, led by Advocate Abdul Salim, refuted the charges, alleging false implication and coercion by authorities to fabricate a confession statement. The case underscores the complexity and legal intricacies surrounding high-profile criminal incidents involving political figures.
