The CBI court has given its final verdict on Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy’s bail cancellation petition. After postponing many times, the court has finally announced the verdict on September 15 as the arguments also ended on a petition seeking revocation of MP Vijayasai Reddy’s bail.
Giving a much-needed relief to YS Jagan and Vijayasai Reddy, the court has refused to cancel the bail and squashed the petition filed by Narsapur MP Raghu Rama Krishna Raju.
The MP sought cancellation of bail granted to the AP Chief Minister in a disproportionate assets case against him, alleging the latter had violated the bail conditions.
The Narsapur MP mentioned in his petition that Jagan is trying to influence the witnesses in the case. He also cited the CM’s non-appearance before the court and seeking exemptions as violations of bail conditions. However, the CBI court has taken none of Raju’s claims into consideration, and it refused to revoke the bail given to both the YSRCP leaders. Meanwhile, Mr Raju is planning to approach a higher court in this regard.
On the other side, the Telangana high court on Wednesday dismissed a petition of Raghu Rama Krishnam Raju requesting for transfer of Jagan Reddy’s bail cancellation case from the CBI special court to another criminal court.
