A special Central Bureau of Investigation court on Wednesday extended till January 17 the judicial remand of YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy and other accused in connection with the alleged disproportionate assets case.

Jagan, arrested by CBI on corruption charges on May 27 last year, is currently lodged in Chanchalguda Central Prison, along with other accused including industrialist Nimmagadda Prasada and senior bureaucrat K V Brahmananda Reddy.

The Andhra Pradesh high court had earlier rejected the Kadapa MP's statutory bail plea whereas his regular bail petition will come up for hearing on January 4.
