The Supreme Court rejected an expedited hearing request for the petition filed by Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader N Chandrababu Naidu to dismiss a 371 crore development scam case filed against him by the Crime Investigation Department (CID). Chief Justice of India Dhananjaya Y Chandrachud advised Naidu's counsel to follow standard procedures for scheduling a hearing, stating that it needed to be mentioned on the list first. Naidu had previously alleged that his arrest was politically motivated, and the high court had refused to quash the FIR against him. His petition argued that the arrest and investigation violated his fundamental rights and that Section 17-A of the Prevention of Corruption Act required approval before initiating the probe. The investigation revolves around funds diversion from a skill development project. The high court determined that interference in the ongoing investigation was unwarranted. Dig Deeper
