A special CBI court in Hyderabad on Monday extended the judicial remand of YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy and others till July 15, in a corruption case.
The Kadapa MP, lodged in Chanchalguda Central Prison in Hyderabd since May 27, 2012, after his arrest by CBI, appeared before the court through a video-link with his co-accused Vijay Sai Reddy, former minister Mopidevi Venkataramana Rao, industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad and others. Court extended their judicial custody by 14 days.
The case relates to alleged investments made by industrialists in Mr. Jagan’s companies when his father, the late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, was the chief minister (2004-09), by way of a quid pro quo for government favours.
The court also extended the judicial custody of former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy and other accused in the OMC illegal mining case as they appeared before it through video-conference from the Chanchalguda jail.
Similarly, the court also extended the judicial custody of Sunil Reddy, an accused in the Emaar scam, till the same date.
The court, in the meanwhile, posted the CBI plea seeking judicial custody for former Andhra Pradesh ministers P. Sabitha Reddy and Dharmana Prasada Rao, both accused in the case against Mr. Jagan, till July 5.
Both Ms. Sabitha and Mr. Rao attended the court proceedings on Monday.
