Sessions court takes up Satyam accused plea

HYDERABAD: A sessions court on Monday reserved orders on the plea of the accused in the Satyam Computers fraud seeking reversal of procedures to commence trial.

Earlier, a trial court had dismissed their application on the ground that it was not tenable in law.

Arguing on the revision petition on behalf of one of the accused Ch. Srisailam, the defence counsel B. Nalin Kumar felt the special court constituted to deal with the fraud did not take into account a Supreme Court judgment which stated that examination of the accused was not mandatory. The judgment of the apex court was clear that police report and accompanying documents should be relied upon to discharge an accused. Examination, if any, should be the last resort.

The prosecution, however, said it was the prerogative of trial court to launch the case with examination of the accused.
