HC questions AP government on Jagan attack

In a major development, the High Court questioned the Andhra Pradesh government on why the reports of the attack on YSRCP chief Jagan was not sent to the Centre.

The government of AP was supposed to send the reports as per the National Investigation Act and the Civil Aviation act.

A petition was filed by Jagan stating that he had no trust in the investigation by the SIT (Special Investigation Team) formed by the AP government and the petition was being heard by Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice S.V. Bhatt.

The High Court had posted the matter for Wednesday after asking the AP government on why it had not forwarded the reports to the Centre yet.

YSRCP chief Jagan had suspected foul play ever since the DGP of AP had said that the knife attack was a publicity stunt by one of Jagan's fan. 

Ever since the attack, Jagan has requested a central agency to be appointed since he had no faith in the investigation by the state authorities. He also accused AP chief minister to plotting the attack on him.

He said that the chief minister had plotted the attack on March as he was receiving an overwhelming response for his Padayatra across the state.
