New Delhi, Nov. 9 The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the petition of Satyam’s founder-chairman Mr B. Ramalinga Raju asking for extending Wednesday’s deadline for his surrender. As a reason for extension of the deadline to surrender, Mr Raju, in his application, cited ill-health and the ongoing family settlement.
He did not say how much more time he needs before surrendering, but asked the court for a reasonable extension.
The Court had last month cancelled the bail granted by the Andhra Pradesh High Court to Mr Raju and five others including his brother, Mr B. Rama Raju. The court had directed the six persons (including the former Satyam CFO, Mr V. Srinivas, and former company employees Mr V. Raju, Mr Srisailam and Mr G. Ramakrishna) to surrender by November 10, otherwise the CBI shall take appropriate steps in accordance with the law.

Around 20 documents were examined by the court and the trial was adjourned for tomorrow.
