The Andhra Pradesh High Court delivered its verdict on Friday, dismissing the CID's request to assign two DSP rank officers to accompany TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu during his medical bail period, rejecting the proposal to monitor his activities and submit regular reports to the court.

However, the court maintained the stipulations it had initially imposed. It clarified that interim bail granted on health grounds should not be likened to custodial bail.

Representing the CID, Additional Advocate General P Sudhakar Reddy, while D Srinivas argued on behalf of Naidu. The court concurred with Naidu's legal team, which argued that stationing two DSPs at the former CM's residence would infringe upon his right to privacy.

Nonetheless, the court issued directives to the TDP leader, prohibiting him from making public comments regarding the Skill Development Corporation Scam case or organizing or participating in public rallies and meetings. The court also reiterated the conditions outlined in Naidu's bail order, instructing him not to offer inducements, make threats, or promises to individuals familiar with the case.

Furthermore, Naidu was ordered not to discourage individuals related to the case from disclosing facts to the court or any other authority. He was also instructed to surrender at the Rajamahendravaram Central Prison by 5 pm on November 28.

This development followed Naidu's release from the Rajamahendravaram Central Prison after spending 53 days in custody. The Andhra Pradesh High Court had granted him a temporary four-week medical bail in the Skill Development Corporation Scam case on October 31.
