The High Court of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana today rejected the resignation of judge Ravinder Reddy, who delivered the Mecca Masjid Blast verdict.

According to sources, the high court has asked Ravinder Reddy, the special National Investigation Agency (NIA) judge to continue to attend to his duties with immediate effect.

On Monday, a special NIA court at Nampally had acquitted all accused in the case due to lack of evidence provided against the latter.

Hours after the verdict was pronounced, Reddy tendered his resignation.
