The Andhra Pradesh High Court has extended bail to Chandrababu Naidu, the former Chief Minister, in a skill development case until November 28, following his earlier arrest on September 9. Naidu's interim bail, granted earlier on health grounds, has been extended as he awaits trial.

Initially granted a four-week interim bail for required cataract surgery, Naidu's bail extension comes with conditions. He must provide a bail bond of Rs. 1,00,000 with two sureties of the same amount to the Trial Court and disclose treatment details in a sealed cover upon surrendering to authorities.

The court, acknowledging Naidu's health concerns, directed him to undergo necessary medical procedures. Meanwhile, the FiberNet case, where Naidu is involved, pertains to alleged irregularities in awarding work orders, causing substantial losses to the state exchequer.

The Andhra Pradesh Police, addressing the Supreme Court, assured not to arrest Naidu in the FiberNet case until October 18 as his petition related to the Skill Development Corporation scam is pending. The scam involves purported fund misappropriation during Naidu's tenure as chief minister.

The investigation alleges mismanagement and irregularities in the AP FiberNet Project, leading to significant financial losses. Naidu's legal proceedings continue amid these allegations tied to the Skill Development Corporation scam, signaling a complex legal battle ahead.
