Jagan case: CBI court completes hearing 127 accused

Hyderabad: In a significant development on the pending cases in the CBI Court involving Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy's disproportionate assets, the court has finished oral arguments for discharge applications from 127 accused individuals. The CBI and ED were investigating them.

The court has been regularly listening to requests from the accused who want their names removed as accused parties from the cases brought by the CBI and ED.

Judge Ch. Ramesh Babu of the CBI Court told the applicants to submit written arguments by December 15 if they wanted to share more details about their cases. However, discussions are still happening for four discharge petitions in the ED case linked to the alleged scam in the Indu-AP Housing Board agreement.

Meanwhile, Y.S. Bhaskar Reddy, the father of Kadapa MP Y.S. Avinash Reddy and the seventh accused in the Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy murder case, surrendered on Friday, before the CBI Court in Hyderabad. His escort bail had expired on November 30.

He was on escort bail since September citing poor health. On Friday, the CBI Court declined to extend the escort bail. Following his surrender, he was transferred to Chanchalguda prison. However, the court permitted him to have an ECG machine and other medical equipment in jail.
