Hyderabad: Former TV9 CEO V Ravi Prakash, who is facing charges of forgery and diversion of funds, was denied permission to travel aboard by the High Court on Tuesday.
In a petition filed in the High Court, Ravi Prakash requested the Court to remove the conditions from the anticipatory bail. He sought exemption from appearing before the Banjara Hills police station thrice a week and also be allowed to travel abroad. After listening to his counsel the High Court dismissed the petition.
In July this year, the High Court granted conditional bail and directed Ravi Prakash to support the police during the course of the investigation and to appear before the police thrice a week. He was also instructed not to travel outside India without seeking permission from the court.
His anticipatory bail was also rejected twice before because he could possibly influence the witnesses and cause problems to the police during the course of the investigation. Challenging the High Court orders, he approached the Supreme Court. However, he received an unfavourable order in the apex court too. The Supreme Court instructed him to go back to High Court for a decision on his anticipatory bail plea.
It may be recollected that Ravi Prakash and two others are facing allegations of forgery, funds diversion, and attempts to illegally sell TV9 logo. Cyber Crime Police have already filed cases to this effect after Alanda Media which bought a major stake in TV 9 filed a complaint . The police have already retrieved the crucial emails exchanged between Ravi Prakash, CFO Murthy, actor Sivaji, and Mojo TV Chairman Harikishan.
