HYDERABAD: The CBI special court at Hyderabad on Friday inquired from CBI’s counsel whether the Telangana High Court had given liberty to AP Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy to request the trial court to exempt him from personal appearance on Friday.

Special court judge B.R. Madhusudan Rao was dealing with the application filed by Mr Reddy for exemption. Mr Niranjan Reddy, counsel for Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy, submitted to the court that he had filed 11 petitions before the High Court seeking exemption of appearance in all the cases registered by the CBI. Counsel said as the cases were to be heard by High Court on February 6, it has given liberty to the petitioner to request the CBI court for exemption by informing it about the cases pending before the High Court.


Seeking clarification on the contention of Mr  Jagan Mohan Reddy’s counsel, the CBI judge inquired about it from CBI counsel, who, in turn, submitted that the High Court had given such liberty. After confirmation, the CBI court allowed Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy’s application for exemption from personal appearance on Friday.

The CBI court later adjourned the cases to February 7 stating that Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy has to appear before it on that day if he does not get any relief from the High Court.

The special court, which is also looking into cases filed by Enforcement Directorate against Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy for violating FEMA rules, exempted him from appearance on Friday.

Meanwhile, Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy has filed six petitions before the Telangana High Court on Friday seeking exemption from personal appearance before the special court in cases filed by Enforcement Directorate. However, the petitions were not numbered due to technical errors.

Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy’s advocate took the petitions back from the registry of the High Court.
