CBI continues grilling Jagan for third day

May 27, 2012 14:21 IST

Kadapa Member of Parliament Y S Jaganmohan Reddy today appeared before the Central Bureau of Investigation in Hyderabad amid heavy security for the third consecutive day today for his questioning in the alleged disproportionate assets case registered against him.

Jagan's financial advisor Vijay Sai Reddy (another accused in the case) also accompanied him to the Dilkusha guest house.

The Kadapa MP is being grilled by the CBI since May 25 over the VANPIC project and for allegedly getting investments of several crores into his businesses from various firms and investors on quid pro quo arrangements, when his father late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh.

The YSR Congress chief, who was questioned for over eight and seven hours in the last two days, had yesterday said he had replied to clarifications sought by the CBI and has been asked to come again before the investigating agency on Sunday, after it sought further clarifications.

Jagan is likely to appear before a CBI court in Nampally on Monday after the court summoned him along with other accused to appear before it after taking cognisance of

the first charge sheet filed in the illegal assets case.

Jagan's anticipatory bail petition will also come up for further hearing on Monday with CBI being asked to file its counter.

In view of his likely appearance before the court, the Hyderabad police have enhanced security in and around Nampally court complex by deploying additional police forces, besides installing CCTVs along the road and surroundings leading to the court.

In order to prevent any untoward incident in the event of Jagan's arrest, the Hyderabad police have already clamped Section 144 of CrPC in the city, besides heavy deployment of AP Special Police and RAF personnel on Raj Bhavan road where the Dilkusha guest house is located.

The CBI, which has so far filed three chargesheets in the case, charged Jagan and his father of hatching a conspiracy to defraud the government with Jagan influencing his father in doling out certain favours to various investors, who made investments of several crores into Jagan's businesses as a quid pro quo arrangement.
