Jagan allowed to move in AP and Delhi by court

October 30, 2013 17:57 IST

A special Central Bureau of Investigation court on Wednesday allowed the plea of YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, facing corruption charges, seeking relaxation in bail onditions to enable him to visit different parts of Andhra Pradesh and Delhi.

Jagan, who was arrested in May last year, got bail in the corruption case in late September this year, with the court asking the Kadapa member of Parliament not to leave the state capital without its permission.

He filed an application in a Special CBI court on October 11 requesting relaxation in conditions to allow him to visit different parts of Andhra Pradesh and also New Delhi.

After hearing the arguments from the defence and prosecution, the court gave its orders directing that Jagan has to inform the court about the tour schedule of the places he intends to visit in Andhra Pradesh.

According to the application, being an MP and leader of a political party, the YSR Congress chief has to meet members of public (in view of the prevailing situation in the state in the wake of announcement to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh) and travel frequently.
