CBI court to decide on Jagan's plea on November 1st


The CBI special court at Hyderabad on Friday reserved its verdict on Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy's petition to exempt him from a personal appearance for every trial in disproportionate assets cases lodged against him.

After hearing the contentions from both sides, Jagan and CBI, the court reserved its judgment and it will be pronounced on 1st  November.

In his plea, Jaganmohan Reddy seeked exemption stating that as a Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, he has various constitutional responsibilities as well as a duty towards people. He further added that it would be a huge burden for the state exchequer to attend court for every hearing from Amaravati to Hyderabad.

The Counsel for CBI submitted that it was almost six years from the date of filing of last charge sheet in the case but the trial proceedings are yet to start. This was an indication that the accused has been able to procrastinate the proceedings on one pretext or other.

Reminding the High Court rejection of Jagan’s plea seeking the exemption of appearance, the counsel argued that Jagan has to file the case before the supreme court, not before the CBI court.
