Telangana HC quashes ED proceedings against Mantena group promoter

Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court has quashed the Enforcement Directorate’s ECIR proceedings against MS Raju of Mantena group in the alleged e-tender tampering fraud in Madhya Pradesh.

Based on Raju’s petition, Justice M Laxman in his order on August 8 said continuation of Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) against the petitioner “amounts to abuse of process of law which cannot be allowed” and quashed the ECIR proceedings.

The ECIR was registered on the basis of registration of an April, 2019 FIR filed by the Madhya Pradesh police economic offences wing (EOW) where Max Mantena Micro JV Hyderabad, among others named as the “main” beneficiaries of the alleged scam.

The Indian, thus, settled his score against the Korean, who had defeated him in their only meeting at the Asia Team Championship in 2022.

Sen was alert and took the initiatives during the rallies, showing his retrieval skills, speed and shot selection to dominate the proceedings.

The Indian lead 5-1 and slowly kept extending the gap against a struggling Jeon, who lacked the finishing punch during the fast-paced rallies.

Sen entered the interval with 11-6 lead and kept things under a firm grip even after resumption to quickly move to 18-11 before sealing the first game with three straight points.

In the second game, Sen opened up a 4-1 lead before extending it to 10-5 with a whipping forehand return. Another straight jump smash helped the Indian make it 11-5 at the break.

Sen continued to construct his points and got behind the shuttle early to produce clean winners to grab eight match points and converted it in his second attempt.
