A Special Court for cases booked under the Prevention of Corruption Act rejected a Plea from a dismissed Government servant who allegedly attempted to Bribe Judges of the Madras High Court.

Previously, the Accused was directed to undergo medical check-up after he claimed to be suffering from mental illness.

Further after a Clinical Examination and Psychological Assessment pertaining to his Mental Illness the report from Institute of Mental Health (IMH) held that V Balasubramanian is able to understand the details of the charges against him and has adequate cognitive functions (Thinking, Memory and Problem Solving Abilities).

Subsequently, the Court noted that the prosecution had a prima facie case to proceed against him and dismissed his Petition to drop charges against him.

The case came into light when the Accused sent a letter to the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court pleading him for a job along with 10,000 bribe to give him a favourable Order.

Further during Hearing, the Accused appealed his mental illness between 2012 and 2014 and psychiatric treatment for the same till date as a ground for his Discharge.
