CBI files supplementary charge-sheet in the quid pro quo investments case against Jaganmohan Reddy
Former Minister Mopidevi Venkata Ramana, an accused in the quid pro quo investments case against Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, was on Monday taken to Osmania General Hospital by the Chanchalguda jail authorities for a medical check-up after he complained of chest pain on Sunday night.
A doctor at the jail had examined him, but he was taken to the hospital for a cardiology check-up, sources said. Mopidevi’s family members visited the hospital to enquire about his health.
The former Minister was discharged later in the day. Mr. Venkata Ramana had a similar complaint last month, when he was being treated by the jail doctor.
Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday filed a supplementary charge-sheet in the quid pro quo investments case against Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy. The charge-sheet was filed against Jagati Publications.
The fresh document also names Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, V. Vijay Sai Reddy and Jagati Publications as accused. It includes more evidence and fresh accounts of witnesses in support of the charges levelled against the accused.
Further investigation into the case had helped the CBI to secure fresh evidence against investments worth Rs. 34.66 crore made in Jagati Publications by A.K. Dandamudi, Madhava Ramachandran and T.R. Kannan as quid pro quo arrangement in lieu of benefits they sought from the government then headed by Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, father of Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy.
For the record, the Enforcement Directorate had on May 31 attached the amount lying as fixed deposit of Jagati Publications with the Jubilee Hills branch of the Oriental Bank of Commerce.
Sources said the CBI had gathered witness accounts and evidence against the role played by Mr. Vijay Sai Reddy in forcing the three persons to make investments in Jagati Publications by assuring benefits.
