Hyderabad: Justice K Lakshman of the Telangana high court on Saturday directed Jubilee Hills police not to arrest the chairman and managing director (CMD) of a leading private hospital, who was accused of domestic violence and attempt to murder by his wife, till June 11. The judge has, however, allowed the police to continue their investigation into the case.
In her complaint lodged with the Jubilee Hills police, the accused’s wife alleged that her husband beat her up severely on the night of June 2 and even tried to strangulate her. She also accused him of selling away 70% of the hospital shares to splurge on women with whom he had extra-marital affairs.
Based on her complaint, the police filed an FIR and launched an investigation.
The accused filed a petition in high court seeking the quashing of the FIR. His counsel argued that the allegations were baseless and made at the behest of the CMD’s daughter and son-in-law who had issues with his charity work. The case is scheduled to come up for hearing again on June 9.
