Fifth Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Prasad in Tirupati dismissed the bail applications of Mithun Reddy and another YSR Congress leader Madhusudan Reddy yesterday on the ground that they did not cooperate with the investigation official, Renigunta Circle Inspector K Sainath said.
    
Mithun Reddy and Madhusudan Reddy were arrested by the AP police last Sunday. They are at present lodged in judicial custody till January 30 in Nellore district prison, Sainath said.
    
A petition seeking their police custody for further examination for two days will come up before another court in Srikalhasti today, he said.
    
The MP, having received a notice from the investigating official in connection with the case, had given an assurance that he would appear before the police, but had gone abroad and thus 'did not cooperate' in the investigation, the CI said.

Another ground for rejecting their bail pleas was that the MP's followers and others created law and order problem by causing damage to public property after their arrest on January 17, he said.
