Former charirman of Satyam B R Raju goes back to jail
November, 10th 2010
After a gap of nearly 11 months, former chairman of Satyam Computers B Ramalinga Raju will be returning to the Chanchalguda jail on Wednesday.
Ramalinga Raju and the other accused are expected to surrender before the XXI Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, since the apex court recently cancelled their bail and directed them to surrender by November 10. Their last-minute effort to seek additional time to surrender was rejected by the Supreme Court on Tuesday.
However, it is still not confirmed whether Ramalinga Raju will be given the same cell in Chanchalguda with similar comforts which he had enjoyed during his earlier stay. Earlier, after Ramalinga Raju obtained permission from the magistrate, the prison officials gave him a separate cell furnished with a cot, mattress, a table, a chair and also a separate bathroom. But both prison officials and people close to Ramalinga Raju remained tight-lipped on the matter.
Ramalinga Rajus counsel Bharat Kumar said his client, who had been suffering from Hepatitis-C, was expected to take 12 more injections in the course of his treatment. From now on, it will be the responsibility of the court to take care of his treatment, he said.
