A special court on Friday dismissed the petition of Satyam scam accused Vadlamani Srinivas, who had sought permission for getting his eyes examined at a private clinic, after a government hospital here found them to be normal.
The Superintendent of Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital (SDEH) informed the court that Srinivas was brought to the hospital on May 22 and examination of both his eyes showed they were normal.
"Complete eye check-up was done and no abnormality was detected. The patient (Srinivas) is complaining of twitching of left eye and for this problem he has to be referred to a neurophysician," the Superintendent said in a letter.
Following the SDEH's report, Srinivas, former CFO of Satyam Computers, also informed the court that his petition may be closed.
Taking note of the medical report and submission of the accused that he has no problems with his eyes, Magistrate BVLN Chakravarti ordered for dismissal of the petition.
Srinivas, an accused in the multi-crore financial fraud in Satyam Computers, had earlier requested the court to allow him to take required medical help for checking his eyes at a private hospital/clinic of his choice and at his cost.
The judge said, though Vadlamani, has no problems with his eyes, if necessary in future, he may again approach the court for getting treatment.
