Judge Ravinder Reddy resigned from his position citing personal reasons. Reddy went on leave after resigning from his post hours after pronouncing the judgment. All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi was termed the judge's resignation 'intriguing'.

The special anti-terror court on Monday acquitted Hindutva preacher Swami Aseemanand and four others in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case, holding that the prosecution failed to prove "even a single allegation" against them.

An inquiry by the Registrar (Vigilance) of the High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad, against Judge Ravinder Reddy, is underway based on a complaint filed by a litigant who wanted "a thorough inquiry to be conducted to know the corrupt practices" of the judge.
