    The Supreme Court has rejected a plea filed by mining baron, Janardhan Reddy to visit Bellary for two days. Reddy had sought permission from the court to visit Bellary for two days so that he could campaign for his brother ahead of the Karnataka assembly elections.

    No campaigning in Bellary, Supreme Court tells Janardhan Reddy

    Janardhan Reddy who is an accused in the illegal mining case was barred from entering Bellary by the Supreme Court. Reddy had in January too made a similar plea, but the same was rejected by the Supreme Court.

    Reddy was jailed in the mining scam and is currently out on bail. He has been a talking point during the elections. The BJP said that he is not campaigning for the party, but for his friend Sriramulu at Molakmuru.

    Though the Supreme Court granted bail to Janardhana Reddy, he cannot visit Bellary, Anantapur and Kadapa as the court has placed restrictions on him entering these places over the danger of destruction of evidence.
