CBI court rejects Jagan’s bail cancellation plea

Hyderabad, April 28 (Maxim News): Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special court here on Friday, cancelled the petition of CBI demanding cancellation of bail to Jagan.

CBI lawyers had maintained that former principal secretary Ramakanth Reddy’s interview on Sakshi TV, was biased and might influence other eye-witnesses, in Jagan Assets case.

Jagan deliberately made Ramakanth Reddy speak, they said. Jagan’s lawyers too countered the petition and said that what Ramakanth Reddy said pertains to the editorial board of the TV and has nothing to do with Jagan. The court cancelled the petition.

It is to mention here that Jagan, an MLA from Andhra Pradesh, was released from a jail in Hyderabad in September 2013 after being in prison for 15 months following his arrest in the case by CBI in May 2012.

While granting bail to Jagan, the special CBI court had then ordered him not to directly or indirectly induce or influence the witnesses.

He was also asked to be present before the court during the proceedings in the case.

The central probe agency has filed 11 charge sheets in connection with the cases and the trial is going on before the CBI court.
