The counsel for the disgraced former chairman of Satyam Computers B Ramalinga Raju has filed a petition in a local court seeking some of the original documents of the chargesheet filed by the CBI in the multi-crore accounting fraud in the IT firm.
In an application, the counsel requested the court to make available some of the crucial original documents of the chargesheet for examination as the photocopies provided earlier were not readable, CBI prosecutor T Venkat Ramana said.
"The matter in this regard will come up in the court on August 19," he told PTI on Saturday.
The charge-sheet in the case was filed by the CBI on April 7, and a copy was handed over to the defence counsels in the court on May 5.
The copy of the chargesheet includes 1,532 original documents, lists of witnesses and copies of statements recorded among other documents.
Meanwhile, in another development, the court dismissed a plea by Ramalinga Raju's sons, Teja Raju and Rama Raju, for defreezing their bank accounts and for returning properties seized during searches, the CBI counsel said.
The court said the applications were premature as the investigation agency was still in the process of collecting information from forensic experts on the seized articles.
